Teaching has always been the career choice I have fell back upon, even after researching many other career options. From being the oldest sibling and from gaining many opportunities working with children over the years, it became clear working with children is something which I wanted to do. I have spent years volunteering with the swimming club which gradually led into me gaining a swimming teacher qualification which allowed me to gain first hand experience of teaching children- in another setting. It allowed to me see that teaching children can be something which you can gain so much from. From seeing children develop, improve and learn new skills to you, yourself improving as you teach. The connections you make with children in such small spaces of time can so beneficial, to both the child and yourself.
