“Well, I liked most of my teachers at school, but my favourite… let me think… I guess my favourite teacher was Mr Hubert. He was the art teacher. I was not good at drawing or painting but it didn’t matter. He helped everyone the same. He made me feel positive about the things I can’t do.”


“Cheese! I remember the first time I ate it. It was at a neighbour’s house. I was really young, two or maybe three years old. I thought “This isn’t food!” I was really sick.

Then when I started school, they gave us cheese on the first day. I wasn’t sick again, but I didn’t want to go back to school on day two!”
