The Most Interesting Teacher - Miss Sheldrick

By Grace, Tamjid and Milan, Year 8 journalists working on the Invictus Scroll newsletter.

UntitledYou may ask why Miss Sheldrick (pictured) is the most interesting teacher. Well, in this amazing article you will find out!

First, Miss Sheldrick was born in Seoul, the capital of South Korea. When Miss Sheldrick was just one month old she had her first flight, which was 28 hours long. This was from South Korea to England, via Alaska and New York.

She has lived in six different countries including England, the Netherlands, Canada, Australia and South Korea. Her accent is quite an amalgamation! During her childhood, she went to four different primary schools and was accused of being “too English” to go to school in Korea.

She also played five different instruments including the piano, saxophone, violin, drums and clarinet. Due to this, Miss Sheldrick played in the Royal Albert Hall three times!

"Accept every opportunity"

Perhaps it’s not surprising that Miss Sheldrick’s favourite quote that she was told as a child is: “Always accept every opportunity you're offered; you’ll never know where it will take you.”

Miss Sheldrick has been on a long journey to become who she is now. She studied Biomedical Science and specialised in genetics at the University Royal Holloway, where Age of Ultron and Harry Potter was filmed.

As if that wasn’t enough, Miss Sheldrick has also written an article about climate change for a science journal called The Ecologist and cuddled a panda!

When she was in her late 20s, Miss Sheldrick created an official costume for a computer game called The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine that was worn by a model promoting the game.

Furthermore, she has tried to self-publish a book and a comic, but she has put that on pause for now because of her teaching commitments. Currently, Miss Sheldrick is a Science teacher in at Harris Invictus after being a music teacher for a year. We are very lucky to have her teaching here and wish her all the best in the years to come!
