Quotes: 


On next steps in Audrey’s career: ‘I don’t think working for the ministry (of education) would be the solution.’
On liking/disliking school ‘I think I loved it.’ ‘I really want to go back into teaching at some point.’
On collaboration: ‘You need people who speak both languages - the one of the teachers and the one of the business people.’
