Graduated teacher training institute in 2012 with 4 short stints of in-school experience, plenty of tutoring work, and years of part-time creative writing teaching under my belt, but... still a new teacher. (:
Extremely strict, lots of discipline with loads of fun and a load more care. Starts the year with the goal of being able to throw successful last-minute-15-minutes birthday parties with the full 30-kids-song-photo-cake-goodies shebang by the second term.
Primary school was too easy-- with insights into the lives of those who did not think the same. Inspired to teach by the teacher who introduced those individuals into my life. Was less inspired to study for most of the rest of my life, but still want to reach out to those who had found studying a struggle from the beginning.
Very no-nonsense = not suitable for teaching 6-7 year-old little monsters, but doing so nevertheless.
