Are you a teacher?
No not yet, I will be in about 6 weeks when I finish my degree.
Are you studying to become a teacher?
Yes, as above.
Why did you want to become a teacher?
I guess it's because I wasn't really sure what it was that I wanted to do. Being a teacher is good because it suits my Jack-of-all-trades personality. At the moment it is what I want to do, however I wouldn't mind other areas of study in the future. However, It is a good feeling knowing that you have made a difference in people's lives.
Do you consider yourself a good pedagogue and speaker?
Yes, I believe I am. I am a very content driven teacher, and believe strongly in building the connection between the "outside world" and the classroom. I find that students need to understand the ultimate purpose behind what it is they are learning, as knowledge is pointless within a vaccuum. I'm also a big advocate of Inquiry-Based Learning. I believe the student needs to be able to drive their learning through their own questioning, as a means to encourage life long learning.
I'm a good speaker in front of the class, but I've always felt more comfortable when I've had a bit of an Audience. I guess it's an ENTP thing, lol.
In what field do you teach?
I'm going to be a Primary School teacher so I have to teacher a broad variety of different subjects. I'm not too keen on the idea of high school teaching (bad memories, lol), but lecturing would probably be pretty cool.
