WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE TO BECOME A TEACHER?
I always thought teaching might be something that I would enjoy so I decided to take on a volunteer position for two weeks at the primary school I attended as a child. After spending some time in school and teaching the children I knew it was what I wanted to do. It is a job like no other. It is a job that allows you to challenge your own skillsets and grow as you develop and grow others. Whether it is planning exciting lessons or finding new subject matter that might even be out of your comfort zone. I wanted a job that made a difference, a real difference.
WHAT IS A MAGIC MOMENT FOR YOU?
The true magic in the classroom, for me, is the bringing together of different communities’ cultures and backgrounds as people from all around the world joined together in the NAISNY classroom to form one strong community. Each day, we get closer as we all work towards our shared vision and every step of that journey is magic.
WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
What truly inspires me as a teacher is the opportunities that a good education can give you in life. The scope of opportunity is limitless. There is a world of opportunities out there; whether it is the dream career; perhaps traveling to a far-away nation. It's the desire to learn a new skill such as a language or instrument. I have been inspired as a teacher in this way by my own personal experiences. The memories I have created for myself and the experiences I have gained from traveling the world, visiting, and living in different countries, have been the powerful alteration of my own personal journey that I hoped to inspire in others.
