5 reasons to go for it
A rewarding career that changes people’s lives? That would be teaching. Find out why.
“I still love learning and teaching, and my enthusiasm for them grows all the time. It’s the best job there is. Let’s be honest, who doesn’t love the idea of making life a little bit more special for our kids and their families? No matter how trying the day, I go home knowing that I have helped children to believe in themselves and to love learning. Yes, the job is very demanding, but there is no better feeling than when you help kids to learn and to hope.”
