I would like to think that over the last year and a half, I have learnt some useful things about how to cope with the demanding lifestyle that comes with being a teacher.
As you know from my profile, I do a lot of voluntary work in my spare time working with children and adults with special needs. It all gives me good knowledge and experience to pursue my dream of being a Special Needs teacher.
With the exception of just a few people that I know, everyone at university will have to make a presentation of some kind during their course.
This year alone I have four presentations!!
One of the most common questions that I have been asked by prospective students and fellow trainee teachers is “how do you find time to do extra things?” – volunteer work and activities that will boost your career experience and the all important CV.
So you’re at sixth form and you’re applying for uni and you’re excited and everything is going swimmingly – you can almost taste the freedom! And then you fall in love. What happens next?
I never thought I would write this, but here I am – I love yoga and even having just 2 months of practice I can see some positive changes already happening, especially when I talk about studying.
Maybe it’s just because I’m a student, but I’m always on the lookout for free stuff and software is no exception. There are a number of free resources and must-haves for your computer.
By far the best and most enjoyable part of my course are the placements that we get to do.
