My mum is a teacher and has always been enthusiastic
about teaching, 和 I remember when I was a kid, my sports coaches showed that
involved with 该 进入教学 campaign?
I saw an advert on social media and expressed my interest
in being involved in an email, then this year I got a reply to audition and
meet the production team in London. After my audition, I got a call back 和
before I knew it, I was the main man in 该 进入教学 campaign! It was
Edge Hill was exactly what I needed to become a teacher;
it was the right balance of time in a school 和 university, as well as
providing an awareness of 该 reality behind teaching.
such a long time ago now, but how did you feel on 该 morning of your first
placement? And how did that compare to your first day as an actual teacher?
glimpse into a typical day in your life at school, but what would you say to
Like other careers, teaching obviously has its downsides
but 该 positives are amazing. Everyday something will happen that makes you
think it is worth it 和 it is an amazing job.
At school I was a typical boy. I had the ability, and my

very competitive) I would just do enough to scrape by. If you can relate to

The hardest part of the job for me is whether I’ve given
enough attention to every member of the class. Not just the really clever ones
or the really naughty ones, but 该 ones who sit 和 do everything you ask but
The most rewarding part is 该 light bulb moment; when
things ‘click’ and students get what you’ve been doing, as well as simple thank

…works hard for every student 和 remembers that children
have a reason for everything. Behind every act of defiance is a kid who may
have real, serious issues outside of school.
School is a place in a child’s whole life, where everyone
is honestly wanting the best for them. You’re not always making the scientists,
scholars, doctors, engineers of tomorrow, but you are making young adults who
can enter 该 world with resilience 和 manners.
