As cliché as it may sound, becoming a teacher has been the dream since grade 3. Like most, you had your favourite teachers at school, and they were the ones who were teaching as more than a job. Personally, my favourite teachers inspired me with their ability to make me feel a sense of belonging in their classroom and encourage my ability to succeed in my OWN way. It was my very least favourites who motivated me to do better to ‘right their wrongs’ by understanding my students wants and needs before my own. I wanted to study education because of who I am as a person – empathetic, driven, organised, passionate and enthusiastic about learning as well as asking myself what is the impact I want to leave behind in this crazy world?
