Miss Holly Doran

How long have you worked at Astmoor and what do you like about working here?

I have worked at Astmoor for just over 6 and a half years. All of the staff at Astmoor are extremely dedicated and determined to offer the best possible opportunities to all of the children within their care. Every single day is different and no matter what we keep on smiling.

Where do you come from?


What is your favourite subject?

My favourite subject has to be ICT because it can be used to help enhance learning in so many other subjects. I particularly enjoy using the IPAD’s we have within school, to download new apps to have fun with in my classroom.  

If you could have a superpower, what would it be and why?

If I could have any superpower, I think it would be time velocity (the ability to stop time). As a teacher, there just aren’t enough hours in the day. So by being able to stop time, every now and again, I would be able to squeeze a lot more into my day ☺

Tell us something funny about yourself.

I really dislike having the TV or radio channel on an odd number. Strange I know, but if someone turns the volume up and it’s changed to an odd number, I would simply have to turn it back down one or up one.

What is your favourite food?

This has to be the hardest question of them all! I love lots of different food, however I think my favourite has to be chicken. Chicken because you can have it in so many different dishes: chicken curry, chicken fajitas, chicken casserole, chicken pasta and chicken nuggets!
