Sad news Excellent teacher and person
Miss Speake was an absolute star. Lovely person. Very intelligent she knew everything. And was always singing.
Can't believe she's gone. What a star. Proper lovely person. Excellent teacher.
Only she could sing Calon Lan while teaching us how to make a coffee table. Loved her. Best teacher I've ever had.
Inspired me so much. From designing to stage management, she was like a walking encyclopaedia. The nicest person I've met. She spoke to us like humans not like she was above us. If you read this Miss, have a fab life , you deserve to have everything that you gave us.courage, cheerfulness in the face of adversity ( yep I remember that one!!) humour and all the other military stuff you used to ramble on about and most importantly, happiness. Because you are amazing Miss Speake. Reach for the moon
Wonderful teacher and an inspiration to her students. She gave my daughter the passion to design and the confidence to have the courage of her convictions. I will remember her for her quote at every parents evening " be cheerful in the face of adversity" . A true diamond of a teacher and I was saddened to hear that she has left
Funniest and nicest teacher I have ever known. Aylestone misses her so much because she was the heart of the place. She genuinely cared about us. Now all that's left is get us through the exams and get us out. Shame. Her new school is lucky to have her. Shoot for the moon Miss Speake you'll land amongst the stars because you are one.
An absolute inspiration. She wanted the best for my child at school at all times. And I know she did the same for them all. Aylestones biggest loss ever. She inspired my child to go on to stage management, an option that she had never thought about until Miss Speake taught her. I hope that wherever she is, that she shines as bright for them as she did for Aylestone because every school needs a Miss Speake.
Loved her. Miss her so much. She was the only teacher there that didn't just want to help us when the head was around to get herself higher up the ladder. She actually cared about us. Lessons were fun. I hate RM now. Miss her singing and her funny little Crocs. the Speake cult has been ended. come back Miss Speake. please come back!!
Inspirational teacher. Not your typical teacher didn't make me feel stupid for asking for explanations. Made my child's experience at Aylestone a very fun experience and inspired him to go a lot further in education. A massive, massive loss to the school. She is irreplaceable.
Don't think there will ever be a teacher as good as her at Aylestone again. What absolutely lovely person. All about the kids always. She gave up her time for us without a second thought. Always there for me. I will never forget her kindness in my darkest days and how she would just grab a piece of paper and work out all my problems. Love you Miss and remember to "shoot for the moon, because even if you miss, you'll land amongst the stars". Good luck in your new school. They will love you
Miss Speake is the best, (love her) will be sooo weird when we leave and dont get to mess about any more. Miss Speake LEGEND!!
Miss Speake is a legend. I love her and her dance off's are sooo funny. Leg pop miss!!
Miss Speake ROCKS!!! She is the best teacher in the school by far. And if you don't like her, its because you have done something that was out of order, making her just not bother with you anymore.
