“I wanted to be a teacher from a young age. I knew I could help young people to better themselves and felt my work would have purpose. As a Business and ICT teacher, I cover a variety of subjects including Business Management, Administration, IT and Tourism. I teach pupils to be enterprising and develop practical skills for creating and running businesses while acquiring ICT skills.
“Every year brings new classes which inspires me to find new ways of teaching as no two classes are the same. Planning and preparation are vital. I plan lessons well and set high standards for my pupils and myself. Seeing young people achieving and learning new skills motivates me to improve. In my work I want to continue to give quality education and, as a black teacher of African origin, I want to see diversity in the teaching profession. I believe I have to help young people to be the best they can be.”
