This year, AGGS has welcomed many new staff members! The Year 11s interviewed the new librarian, Mrs Hodgson (thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule). Here is the result!

How are you finding life here at AGGS? 

It is very hectic here but I love it already. This is my dream job!

Why did you want to become a librarian?

I wanted to work in libraries because I love books and reading. I started out in university libraries but there is much more fun to be had in schools!

Have you made any new friends?

The staff here are very welcoming so yes. Also my team of librarians have been a great help.

Tell us an interesting fact about yourself.

I lived in China for a year as part of my degree course.

What A-Levels did you take?

English literature, French, German and General Studies. I found my A-Levels the hardest stretch if my academic life. It’s tough but worth the effort.

Do you have any advice for AGGS students?

Be kind to yourself and be kind to others. Know that you will always get a second chance and that you can change the world!

Thank you to Mrs Hodgson!
