There are many reasons why people want to become teachers. You need to have a lot of patience to become a teacher and have a passion for learning. You may feel that you would rather work with children of a certain age or adults depending on which you feel you would have more to offer to.
Many of us have had inspirational teachers who have contributed to who we are today, and we never forget the influence they’ve had on us.
As a teacher, every day is different and to a degree you have a bit of freedom in your role, choosing how and when you teach certain subjects.
