Why Teach? Our podcast series

In our new podcast series Why Teach? Steven Mills puts that very question to five teachers currently working in Scotland.

Shiv, a geography teacher in Edinburgh, loves to impart his own passion for the subject to his students, whilst Lisa, an English teacher working in Paisley, shares her route to teaching via journalism and how her own teachers have helped shape how she teaches today.

In each of the five podcast episodes, one of our teachers shares their inspiring, rewarding and sometimes challenging classroom experiences. They talk about their reasons for choosing teaching, their passion for the job and why they’d recommend the profession to others thinking about it. Although each teacher had a different career route, and has chosen a different subject or school, it’s clear that they are united in their desire to make a positive difference to the lives of young people.
