I became interested in teaching after realising how much I had benefited from excellent and passionate lecturers at the university I attended. They exuded a real sense of enthusiasm for learning which inspires me to pass on that passion. The motivation for me to work with children is building their confidence and making learning fun. Teachers possess the power to enhance future generations by developing their thinking and behavior.
Studying at university developed my passion for computer science and taught me a range of academic skills which I believe are fundamentally important to teach young people. This is demonstrated in my dissertation, which was awarded a second, looking at how augmented reality can be used on websites, opening my eyes to how computer science gives students a greater understanding of computer software and its place in our diverse and changing world.
Being through the education system and seeing how the subject content is delivered to students, made me think how I could deliver the same content more effectively with contemporary strategies.
