'I started working part time at Mary Hare 20 years ago when my daughters were very young, working only at weekends. As my girls became older, I worked some evenings until eventually I became a full-time member of the team and heading the year 7 residential house. I stay because I love my job. Watching the young people find their identity, confidence, independence and voice as they journey through the school. To see them leave 6th Form as well rounded young people, makes all the hard work worthwhile and I feel so proud of them' Alisa
