Karen Emmett Interview

Here is why we love Karen Emmett our Teacher of the Month!


Karen is truly a trailblazer in education, always pushing the boundaries of what's possible. From the moment I met her at Chiswick School, it was clear she's not your average teacher.  


She's brimming with creative ideas and solutions, never hesitating to take her students out into the community for enriching experiences.


Especially for those who find traditional academics challenging, Karen believes in the power of community connection to boost confidence and bring out their best selves. And let me tell you, she's not just about the serious stuff.


Karen's got a way with words and people that can make a whole room laugh and cry at the same time. She is such an integral part of Chiswick school, and we're lucky to be able to work with her. Karen, we appreciate you!


Q: Why do you think TimeGivers is beneficial for your students?

A: It enables students to work cooperatively with others whilst learning new skills. It increases their self-confidence and enhances well being. It helps them to recognise the value of sharing and giving back. 


Q: Is there a moment that you remember that was particularly special?

A: I loved it when the children sang carols at the elderly care home and the choir sang an encore of The Beach Boys, Get Around. The elderly residents all joined in and their faces were a picture of joy.


Q: Why do you like working with TimeGivers?

A: I love their energy, passion, and selflessness. I love that we show children the value of giving back. To see the children learning and loving new skills is amazing. It is a journey of love and I am humbled to be part of that journey, having been there from the start.
