5 minutes with Dee Deol
Tell us something people might not know about you? Too many to record here! Apart from wearing bear costumes when walking the recent 15-mile Marsden march and for a 10k run, I have also trekked the Hemkund Sahib located in the Himalayas, which is at an altitude above 15,000 feet – really high – I didn’t wear the bear costume for this! I also worked as a special educational needs (SEN) counsellor for a summer at Camp America after my teaching degree. It was hard work but fun and I was very fortunate to spend time with so many amazing kids. What is your background? I started my career in teaching. My degree was in Business Studies and my MSc in International Business Management. After taking my PGCE I taught post-16 Business Studies for 8 years, progressing to Head of Department. What did you want to be when you were growing up? I wanted to be a policeman (my Year 9 work experience was with the police) or a vet. I wasn’t allowed to have a pet when I was growing up and I love animals. So as soon as I left home, I got an indoor rabbit and, yes, he was well trained! Now I have a rescue dog called Tommy.
