Handballs bounce playfully around the courtyard and sounds of teachers bustling about their classrooms fill the air. It's 8:10am and Kate Chellingworth is also busily preparing for the day ahead. But Kate is no ordinary school teacher. Kate is in a wheelchair.

'You have to have a good personality', Marina commented, 'and you have to be crossing supervisor for that person who wants to cross, no matter who they are.'

Since the release of Toy Story in 1995, Pixar movies have dazzled critics and audiences alike with heartwarming, and often hilarious, tales of adventure and discovery.
