“One of the most important things about teaching is showing my enthusiasm for the subject. When the pupils see how passionate you are then they start to care too. I don’t think that I’ve ever taught the same lesson twice. Even though you’re teaching the same curriculum every year, it doesn’t mean you teach it the same way. Every pupil and class have different needs, so you have to be creative and adaptable; it’s exciting that every day is different. Working with young people can be challenging but that’s a good thing. They give you the drive to better yourself and better their learning. If you’re interested in teaching, get into a classroom and observe teachers in action. You’ll get a feel for the job and hopefully you’d find it as fun as I do.”
