Barbara Still has been a teacher at Hummersknott comprehensive school in Darlington for 27 years.

She's been a head of English but is currently in a pastoral post as head of house, with more than 300 pupils aged 11-16 in her care. "She still manages to know each one personally and always has time for a chat and a friendly word," says her colleague Diana Baker who nominated her for our flowers tis week. Barbara provides "invaluable support" to fellow teachers and with her wealth of experience gives wise support and guidance.
