Miss Leah is a very sarcastic geography teacher and is in fact possibly one of BRGS' funniest teachers. If you have a nice class then geography with Miss Leah is actually one of the funnest lessons. She likes to call people 'numpties' whenever they say something dumb.
During one Intake 16 lesson in 2019 it was discovered that Miss Leah has a deep and undying hatred for pandas. Some of her reasons for this loathing include:
No one is really sure where this hatred came from although some believe that as a child she may have fallen into a giant panda enclosure, not dissimilar to the scene in Harry Potter where Dudley falls through the disappearing glass and ends up in the snake tank.
Some bright sparks have even noticed that a couple of teachers seem to have something against our bear friends, with Mr Flynn and Mrs Stevenson-Jones both disliking polar bears, and Miss Leah disliking pandas... is there a connection?
A particular class was once just chatting to Miss Leah about her hobbies and one of which was 'climbing' alongside walking, sewing, and reading. The class thought nothing of it until one observant student noticed that there was a gluestick on a ledge halfway up the wall, far out of reach from any normal human.
Upon asking her about it Miss Leah quickly changed the subject back to geography and told the student not to ask such silly questions (as we were supposed to be working in silence).
Miss Leah: Ooh my wedding invitations are going to arrive on Sunday!
Student: What do they look like?
Miss Leah: They're pink.
Student: Does your husband like the colour pink?
Miss Leah: He'd better.
"I don't want any parents to see me in the supermarket with a trolley full of wine, that's why I live so far away from school. Just kidding."
"I hate Lord of the Rings, it's way too long and it's like 90% Elvish songs, it's the only book I've never read fully because there are way too many Elvish songs. Like Tolkien could have literally written 'They sang fullstop' but oh no, he went and wrote 30 pages of choruses and verses of songs about elves!"
"Sprouts taste like green."
"What do vulcanologists study? NO ONE SAY STAR TREK."
Miss Leah: Always do your work in black or blue pen and your diagrams in pencil no matter what Mr Fitton says.
Student: Erm, he's left now.
Miss Leah: Oh.
Student: Miss, why is this part of the map grey?
Miss Leah: There is no data for the language they speak there.
Student:...Or maybe they just don't speak.
Miss Leah: No.
Student: What are they doing now, miss?
Miss Leah: The builders?
Miss Leah: They're adding another floor to the art department.
Student: Yeah, but what are they doing now?
Miss Leah: I don't know! I don't just get a copy of their daily schedule like 'Wednesday, 14th November: Hammer...'"
