Mother, wife, student. I am ashamed to say that this may not always be the order of priority..... depending on current stress levels.
I fell aimlessly and lost into teaching after spending 3 years studying nursing and finding the environment just too depressing. I knew I wanted to in some way help people and in particular help children. Now at the age of 42 and in my 3rd year of a 4 Year Bachleor of Learning Management Degree I believe I have found my way. Teaching for me is about getting the very best from each and every child in their learning environment. How fortunate am I to be in a position to positivley shape and nurture a childs creativity, dreams, aspirations and gifts no matter what these may be!
