There are so many different reasons as to why I want to become a teacher, some of which stem all the way back to primary school, another reason is because of my family (my younger brother) and the last reason is to share my positive experiences from my time at school to younger generations and to help them to become the best versions of themselves.
When carrying out work experience last year I had the opportunity to spend time at four very different educational environments. On one of my work experience placements a teacher spoke to me about unlocking the potential in every child. These few words to me sum up a teachers role. These words also inspired me, making me want to teach even more as I want to help play an important part in the lives of young people.
Throughout my journey through school, I was in the fortunate position of being taught by many teachers that were inspiring and great role models to my younger self. These teachers gave me support and guidance where necessary and taught me skills and lessons that I will value for life. These are the things that I want to give back to younger generations, providing them with the same support and guidance that I received. I want to be a role model and a person who not only teaches them all of the vital lessons which they have to be taught, but I want to be a role model and a person who the children feel like they can come to with any issue no matter how big or small.
Shaping the lives of young people is something which I believe is so important, and something which I would love to help with, I want to give all children an educational experience that is as positive and inspiring as the one which I have had and to help unlock the potential that is inside every child.
