Bonding with Children

I immediately wanted to become a teacher when I realised I had a natural bond with children. Coming from a large family and helping out with my child minder Aunt developed this bond.

I was also inspired by my one of my primary teachers who was extremely creative in comparison to other teachers. For example, one thing we done in her classroom was created a book called a learning log. These books made learning so much more fun as you would design it in what ever way desires you and every lesson would be a different theme such as McDonald’s. The relation between learning and interests outside of school made us pupils want to learn. I aspire to be like this teacher and use teaching strategies similar to hers.
