You obviously have an affinity with children. What do you like about teaching?
“I like seeing a child understand something, watching them going through the process of trying different things to get to that point. When they get something, it’s cool. I used to work at a women’s refuge for women and children escaping domestic violence. Dealing with that then having the background knowledge of how children come to school with different issues, I think that kind of helps me. So you have to be more nurturing. I think that’s what’s missing in teaching these days, a lot of teachers don’t really like kids.”
