Miss Davis and Mrs Raffermati
I’m Mrs Raffermati and I have been teaching in Fleetville Juniors for just over four years. The people most important to me are my friends and family. The things I enjoy doing at the moment are: being outdoors and appreciating nature, watching movies, visiting new places and cooking (I like finding new recipes and trying them out, especially if they are quick and easy).
I am Miss Davis and I started at Fleetville in January 2021.
There are three people that inspire me. The first being my mum. She has so much wisdom that I always go to her for advice; I wish I had that same wisdom. The second and third people who inspire me are my older brother and best friend for the same reason. They are two people who have had many obstacles thrown at them during there life, but they are always so positive and never give up. I learn a lot from them.
I am inspired by anyone who lives by a strong set of morals and models them in what they do/aspire to achieve.
Examples include but are not limited to:
Environmental: Greta Thunberg, Gail Bradbrook
Musical: Beverley Knight, Gloria Estefan, Dave Grohl
Political/Human Rights: Masih Alinejad, Barack Obama, Nelson Mandela
Sporting: Nadia Nadim, Serena Williams, Cristiano Ronaldo
Kindness is simply treating others how you would like to be treated, by showing empathy (putting yourself in their shoes so to speak).
I would define kindness as an intrinsic attitude to everyday actions that betters the life and spirit of those around an individual - not for personal gain particularly, but because it feels right.
One of my proudest accomplishments was probably leaving the UK to go and teach in Australia for a year in 2011. Some of my friends thought I would never get on the plane, but I proved them wrong. I had stepped out of my comfort zone, and went there on my own. It was hard to begin with as I missed my friends and family, but I managed to meet new people and make new friends. I look back on it with fond memories and it really helped me gain perspective of my life.
I am proud of everything I've ever done. Shaping my own path and taking on every challenge I can. Not settling for not doing something if no one else wants to. Making things happen.
