Welcome to my blog. Allow me to take you with me on a journey of a lifetime; a journey that will test my knowledge, capabilities and my need for adventure. Some have labelled this journey as an "opportunity", others have called it "career suicide"... and I guess the only reasoning I could find to silence the negativity was this quote:
"For a seed to achieve its greatest expression, it must come completely undone. The shell cracks, its insides come out and everything changes. To someone who doesn’t understand growth, it would look like complete destruction"- Cynthia Occelli
Personally I think Cynthia is bang on here!
By trade; I am a Secondary School Drama Teacher who has successfully taught pupils of various abilities and ages (11-18) through a range of levels and qualifications in Scotland, UK. I have fully asserted myself in every aspect of my working life and have never shirked away from getting involved in various activities across the school. I have thoroughly loved working in the schools that I have been a member of staff in and from each I have taken away a different experience.
A large part of my adventure is to expand my pedagogy and have a broader understanding of pupils and education systems around the world.
By nature; I am passionate, strong willed, determined, adventurous, and compassionate. The motivations behind my adventure are to one day look back on my life with a smile and remember how full my life was, how much I have managed to achieve and the fears that I overcame... I guess this is what they call "Personal growth"
