AMBASSADORS OF HOPE
Placement showed teaching was the career for me.
I have gone from a sport science university student, to a trainee PE teacher to now having my own class at a SEN school teacher multiple subjects.
I always thought about teaching as a potential career but was not certain, it was during my first week on placement teaching at school that I realised that teaching was the career for me.
The encouragement and support Sporting Communities gave me allowed me to develop not only my professional qualities, but my personal ones. They would always keep my end goals in mind and tailored the sessions to help give me the experiences I needed most to encourage my growth, finishing with leading sessions on my own. As a result of this I have grown so much as a person – my confidence, my subject knowledge and my organisation and motivation. Such a fantastic team that were always there to provide support if I was ever challenged.
When I was looking for a school to complete my teacher training I was incredibly lucky that thanks to my work with Sporting Communities I was accepted at a school we had worked in. I would not be in the position I am in today without the support and experiences I got. Not only that I got the opportunity to take multiple qualifications for my development and to provide the best sessions possible for the participants.
I do not really have any celebrity role models however, my mum is a massive role model, every illness or problem she has faced she’s overcome it and never taken anything for granted. My grandparents – so hard working and always motivated to strive for more and challenge themselves which inspires me to do the same.
