Top reasons why I became a primary teacher!
By: Hannah Chalk, PGCE Primary Graduate, Teacher at Hollybrook Infant School
I have always wanted to be a teacher for as long as I can remember.
I originally wanted to be a secondary PE teacher but that soon changed during my second year of university where I decided I wanted to become a Primary school teacher.
I decided I wanted to become a primary teacher because these are some of the most important years of a child’s life and the children are so willing and enthusiastic to learn.
As a teacher, you are having a big impact on not just their education but also their emotional and social well being. It come with its challenges but it is the most rewarding job as you get to see them learn and grow not just in your class, but throughout their school life and I wouldn’t change it for the world.
I decided to complete my PGCE at Chichester as I completed my BA Hons degree there in sport and I loved every second of it and I wanted the same experience throughout my PGCE.
I received great support through my mentor, other lecturers and other students throughout the course and I wouldn’t be where I am today without it or the great people I met along the way!
