Former student Danielle Jenkinson, 19, told the Echo.

"She was more of a friend and a mother figure than a teacher.

"As pupils we could go to her about anything and everything. That could include any problems outside of school.

"She was the most amazing person and a brilliant teacher.

"She had a fish bowl in her classroom at school and we used to feed the fish every time we started class.

"I will always remember her and everyone will miss her."

Former student Craig Clark said: “Loved English classes with her. They were awesome.”

She was due to fly back to England on Sunday.

It comes seven years after Sian's husband died suddenly, aged 30. It is understood he died at the couple's home.

    Still can't believe this! It was a pleasure to have known Miss Marshall and be taught by her. Not only was she a teacher but also a great role model for students, she was extremely dedicated to getting the best out of everyone. Sian always had a smile on her face and you could talk to her about anything in the world and she would help you out. I can't thank her enough for encouraging me to do my best. R.I.P. Miss Marshall you will be sorely missed by everyone! Thank you for everything and I hope you're finally at peace.

    I'm shocked and saddened to hear this news. Miss Marshall was my English teacher in year 7 at LSST, before she moved to City school after that year. She made joining a new school a far easier experience than it might have been without her, and as well as being a brilliant teacher, who I learned a lot from, she was full of encouragement, support and love and was one of the most caring secondary school teachers I've ever come across. She helped me with a few personal issues in that year, as well as fueling my love for the subject she taught, taking it all the way to A Level. Although I was only taught by her for one academic year (02-03), I have always and will always remember her. She was one of my favourite ever teachers, and I am so sad to hear the news. RIP, Miss Marshall xxx
