Why did I choose teaching?

My heart has always been set on teaching from a very young age. I looked up to my teachers all throughout primary and into further education as they seemed to enjoy what they did and got a lot of satisfaction from their input in their pupils lives.
One specific teacher I had always made learning fun for us and that has made me want to help other children see that learning isn’t just about having to sit at a desk, bored all day.
I have a passion for learning and a desire to pass on this same enthusiasm to children to enable them to see all the possibilities and enrichment which education has to offer.
Although it’s not given much consideration, a teacher plays a massive role in everyone’s life at some point and this has encouraged me to take up this profession.The choices children begin to make early on greatly influence their future, so I’d like to help them make the right decisions to ensure they grow up to be the best version of themselves possible. I would like to become a teacher so I can make a difference to the next generation and inspire an optimistic outlook for the future.

    Hi Megan. I have a question, for reflection for you. You mention that you have a passion for learning – I wonder if this is about the process of discovery or the outcome of knowing something new or acquiring knowledge. I would see these as slightly different – what do you think?

      I must say that is a very good question, I had to think about that for a while. I believe the passion I have for learning comes from the empowering feeling of learning something new and being able to apply it in my life. I do enjoy the process of learning however the outcome of knowing something important I feel gives a much greater satisfaction. I hope this answers your question.
