“I genuinely love being a teacher. Whether it is developing relationships with staff and pupils, acting as a mentor to young people, or simply sharing my love for Maths, I find that there is a great deal of job satisfaction on offer.

“The job of a teacher is not without its challenges, although I aim to improve pupil performance and implement my behavioural policies which I feel will benefit my students in the long-term.

“Moving forward, my primary aim is to focus on becoming an excellent Maths Teacher. One crucial aspect of this is going to be motivating my pupils so that they are more enthusiastic about STEM subjects. I personally feel that this comes back to the important fundamentals of teaching; we need to shake off the ‘boring’ tag and, for teachers, this starts by reinforcing your own passion, otherwise you are going to find it hard proving them wrong.”
