How did I get here? I’m not 100% sure so I’ll list what I know to be fact.
- I wrote “teacher” as my dream job in Year 1 and Year 4 but it is highly likely that it was because I knew how the spell the word teacher.
- I hated school, like really hated it, and had every intention of leaving ASAP!
- I was good at looking after children, I never ran out of things to say to them or do with them.
- I thought that the good teachers were the ones who didn’t judge a book or child by its cover.
- I didn’t like Maths and was a really bad speller.
- By high school it was just the thing I was going to do.
I finished high school; I then went on to a Certificate III and IV in Teaching Assistant specialising in early childhood and special needs. This gave me the qualifications to go to The University of Notre Dame Australia, where I received my BE in Early Childhood Education in 2011.
I started my teaching career in 2012 in a Pre-Primary classroom full time at a government school. Needless to say I learnt a lot, worked a lot and loved my job a whole lot. This year has seen me work as a relief teacher, partly to experience as many different teaching styles and classrooms as possible and partly to enable me to travel to Europe for their summer, oh and to blog, something, which I hope you’ll enjoy as much as I will.
For now welcome to my blog “WriteOnTheBoard”.
