Tell us a bit about yourself?
I'm a trainee teacher, learning the subject alongside teaching it.
Teaching had always been my dream career and it is finally coming true. I'm enjoying every minute of it.
As a trainee I’m teaching a variety of year 7, 8 and 10 classes. I'm building up in my programming skills and enjoying that too.
What do you love most about teaching? Tell us about your proudest moment so far?
I think my proudest moment was when I taught my year 10 class for the first time (I was really nervous about teaching them as my computer science knowledge is not great yet) and after the lesson these students said to me: "Miss, that was a really fun lesson and we learnt a lot from it". Also adding "we knew when we saw you that you would make an amazing teacher". I couldn’t have been happier that day.
What made you make the move into teaching? What motivated you to teach?
I have always wanted to be a teacher so this is like a dream come true. The only reason I didn't do it until now is due to family commitments.
What advice would you give someone thinking about becoming a teacher?
I would totally recommend it. It's one of those careers where you get rewarded by seeing your students achieve something which is great because it gives you the satisfaction that you changed someone’s life for the better.
