Celebrating transformational teaching

Cinzia Imbriano

Green Ridge Academy

The Award for Outstanding New Teacher of the Year

Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire

Cinzia has made an incredible start to her teaching career and NQT year at Green Ridge, as the only teacher in Key Stage One and Two. The academy opened in September 2017 when Cinzia joined, and since then Cinzia has transformed the education and experiences of the children she teaches.

Cinzia has created a nurturing approach to the children in her care, and under her careful guidance and support, they have flourished and excelled in every area. Bringing together 30 children from over 20 different schools into one mixed-age class is no easy task, and Cinzia has done this with tenacity, resilience but above all, she is committed to ensuring that her pupils achieve the highest possible standards, and this she does with great passion for teaching and learning.
