      I had a lot of different science Teachers, but a few stand out. Mr Mitchell was my biology teacher at A level, and he was very dry, and very funny, and taught me the things that made me most interested in Biology. At University I had some great lecturers, including John Maynard Smith, who was a very famous evolutionary biologist.

      I had a lot of different science teachers as well, the ones that really stood out for me and made me choose plant science where at University, they really sparked my interest in plant science and help me down the path to getting a PhD and my current job. Have a good teacher makes a big impact on your learning, as the more interested you are the easier it seems to be. Hopefully you will come into contact with loads of great teachers/lecturers.

      Teachers can be really inspiring. I had a series of great biology and chemistry teachers which made me do what I do today!

      I had many different science teachers, although it was my A-level biology teacher and my geography teachers that were generally the most encouraging to me throughout my time at school.
