“ There has been so much support both in and out of the classroom meaning the apprehension I once had about being the teacher has gone ”

The thing I love about teaching is the challenge I face. There is a challenge to ensure all students understand maths, give them the logical and creative thinking needed and pass on the enthusiasm I have for the subject. There are many misconceptions people have about maths causing anxiety and I think its part of the challenge and fun creating and using methods of teaching to tackle the problem.

The future teaching scholars programme has shown me the difficulties teachers have such as making sure all students are engaged and learning but also how fantastic it is working with young people and having a job where no two days are the same. There has been so much support both in and out of the classroom meaning the apprehension I once had about being the teacher has gone.
