Proud to be Staffs Story: Lisa Mansell

Lisa's Story

This Proud to be Staffs story is a little different; in fact it's a story in poetic form! Lisa's students submitted their story as a poem, testimony to the support Lisa gives them to love their subject and their talent too! Here it is:

Our Dr.Mansell,

No-one can steal her mantle

From ancient Norse to Bloomfield

She expands our minds creatively

Yes, there is no greater treasure pleasure

Than to ditch one's quilt for Saussure's measure

Shared out by golden bobbing Lisa

Who offers a lift on rhyming meter.
