An award was presented to Carol Lenton from Friskney All Saints Primary School 10 years ago to mark 20 years of teaching in Lincolnshire.
At a special assembly held at the school, Mrs Lenton received a digital camera from Lincolnshire County Council representative Di Growcock, as well as flowers and chocolates from staff and a mouse and mouse pad for her computer from the board of governors.
She said: “I always wanted to be a teacher. I love working with children and was previously a nanny.
“There have been many changes over the years. I have seen blackboards become whiteboards and now they are interactive whiteboards.
“The children enjoy the technology and I have had to change my lessons accordingly.”
Mrs Lenton had been at the school for seven years, previously being based at the Magdalen Primary School, in Wainfleet.
