Why I wanted to be a Teacher

I have always aspired to be a primary teacher ever since I was a little girl.  I remember sitting in my room reading through a register and explaining an old worksheet from school to my imaginary students.

There are several important people who helped me achieve my life long goal.  Mrs Terroni, my guidance teacher, always helped me in any way possible. from helping me write my personal statement to allowing me out of school to gain experience in primary schools.  She always believed in me and for that i am very grateful.

My best friends mum , Dawn also helped me in many ways.  With her being the headteacher at a school nearby, she allowed me to carry out my work experience at her school which helped me gain experience i otherwise would not have been able to achieve.
