As of right now, I still want to be a teacher. I love working with children and seeing them succeeded because of my teaching will make me very happy. Observing the children in the CDC gave me a taste of what it would be like to be doing my field experience/student teaching. The children are all so happy and excited to learn and I cannot wait to be a part of it. I know the road ahead will be long and difficult, but it will be worth it once I get to the end. I know teaching is my passion because I have talked about working with children since I was young. It is cliché, but I truly want to be able to make a difference in as many lives as I can. I have found comfort in the fact that even if I end up disliking teaching in the classroom, I know there are many other options out there for me. Museum education and government jobs with ODJFS are just two options of many that I could get into and still have a positive impact on many children’s lives. I am very excited for the journey of becoming an early childhood education teacher, and cannot wait to see what my future

    The schools I have been on placement both have strong links with the communities they provide for and I have been lucky enough to work with parent helpers as well as being given the opportunity to teach my Year 2 class and their parents on a science morning. Having planned lots of investigation the parents and children all enjoyed the experience. Parents like to be in involved in their children’s learning and to help within class or on trips. I feel as a teacher this is often something that is underutilised and feel that having parents that are involved only encourage the children to see their learning positively. I aim to give children as many positive experiences and opportunities to personalise their own learning.…

    As a teacher, I have the satisfaction and responsibility to help every child in my classroom grow toward becoming a well-rounded student, who feels that he or she can be effective and have that capacity to learn.
