MBE delight for Buckie teacher
A Moray teacher who has dedicated most of her career to children with addition support needs has been honoured by the Queen.
Sharon Aitken has been made an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List.
She has been involved with ASN pupils in Buckie for the past 27 years.
A former primary teacher, she began working in ASN during a one-year secondment to Buckie High School in 1990 and stayed until 1996 after the post was made permanent.
Sharon then helped set up the ASN enhanced provision at nearby Millbank Primary School where she remained until being appointed principal teacher of ASN back at Buckie High seven years ago.
Married with two daughters, she said she was “totally overwhelmed” at the honour.
