Teaching is a profession where there are never enough hours in the day and always more to be done. I think that it is one of the most rewarding careers whether it is watching that “light bulb” moment for a child or seeing the children’s characters/personalities develop and confidence grow. It is a profession with plenty of highs and lows but also one where you can use your creativity. I loved finding exciting ways to engage the children and never ceased to be amazed at how they responded to learning.
So what makes a good teacher? Well throughout my career I have had many answers to this question – “you wear nice earrings” “you smile a lot” “you don’t shout” “you treat everyone the same” “You make learning fun” “you help us” and “you listen” are some.
