My goal of becoming a teacher began almost 20 years ago. The passion and enthusiasm of my high school mathematics teacher was a very influential part of my decision. After completing year 12, I enrolled in education at James Cook University, but later deferred.
Several medical administration jobs, 3 beautiful children and 1 very supportive husband later – I am on track to achieve my goal at the end of next year.
I am currently employed as a Teacher Aide at a P-12 school in Hervey Bay. Even though I find the work/study/family balance challenging at times, I feel that the on the job experience I gain from my teacher aide position will be invaluable to me when I begin my teaching career.
A wise man once told me that ‘the more challenging the journey, the more valuable the experience’. I am hoping that he is correct.
With some trepidation, I look forward to the collaborative learning experience ahead of me this semester. I hope that you enjoy following and contributing to my journey.
Yours in ICT
