You may not think it, but teachers can be a pretty eccentric bunch. Combining a thirst for knowledge and experience with a desire to push boundaries can result in some unusual hobbies and interests. And some teachers take these passions to the next level, such as Hannah Winstanley, a primary school teacher and subject leader who frequently stops the world and gets off for an hour or two.
“A love of adventure and personal challenge are what spur me on,” says Hannah, “as well as a determination to overcome my fears and phobias, such as heights and deep water. I love a challenge. Preferably, something that takes me out of my comfort zone.”
