I want to become a teacher because

Becoming a teacher is something i have always seen myself doing. People often have a key experience or thing that has happened in their life which has influenced their chosen career path. For me, it was always about being able to inspire and make a difference to someones life that drew me to the idea of becoming a teacher. The fact that you can go to work and help someone else become a better version of themselves is just such an exciting thought and is the main factor in influencing my decision.

My first experience working with young children in a professional setting took place in my last year of high school. I made the decision to do a placement as i wanted to be sure that teaching was exactly the profession i wanted to go into.
