When I was five, I was in awe of my Year One teacher. How could someone be so magical and know so much? At 10, I fell in love with the French language and that was that - I had to be a French teacher. Teaching a language is difficult, students are out of their comfort zone and relationships are key to building their confidence within the target language. For the last five years, I’ve spent my time teaching French across Logan and Ipswich’s most socio-economically disadvantaged schools and have loved every minute. Teaching is a challenge but if you’re in love with your subject, take time for yourself and really get to know your students, every day will be an adventure in your classroom!
