New South Wales Teachers
What age group do you teach? Primary, secondary, etc?|
In addition to being a school teacher, I'm a swimming instructor and I teach 6month olds, to 13yr olds.
If primary, what year group are you teaching at the moment?
I'm currently on Prac with a yr4 classroom.
Are you at a metropolitan/suburban/regional/rural school?
suburban - south-west sydney
How long have you been teaching?
No years yet! :)
I'm a UTS student and have participated in 7 different placements over the course of 4 years.
I've been a swimming instructor for 5 years
Are you casual or full-time?
Do you teach any extra-curriculars?
I'd love to teach an arts class, or lead a choir.
What do you most enjoy about teaching?
When I create a wonderful learning experience that really connects into the students' real lives. Also, when students work well in a group situation.
And of course, who doesn't love watching the "light switch on" in kids who have been really struggling to understand a concept
What do you least enjoy about teaching?
Having to discipline student after an incident has occured (I much prefer preventitive behaviour management)
Having to write doccumentation that uses formal wordy language to say something simple.
Not sure if I should admit this, but I love most every KLA except English
