The teacher died in a collision outside of Fishguard.

“Staff and pupils at Ysgol Glannau Gwaun are deeply shocked and saddened at her tragic death.

“She was an outstanding teacher, conscientious and caring.

“She began her role as teacher in charge of the Learning Resource Centre (formerly known as the SEN Severe and Complex needs class) at Ysgol Glannau Gwaun, in January 2012 and immediately earned the respect of pupils, parents and colleagues through her hard work and joyful, serene, gentle personality.

“All her pupils had additional learning needs; she met all their needs by making each of them feel special, unifying in a pragmatic and unassuming way, a team of support workers who respected her professionalism and loved her for it.

“Undoubtedly the community at Ysgol Glannau Gwaun has been denied the services of one who was destined for great things.”

He added that there was a book of condolence in the reception area of the school for those who wanted pay tribute to “a true friend of the pupils and parents and a person much beloved by her colleagues at this school and others where she has taught.”
