What do teachers think about their journey?


Karl Howarth

My main reason for switching professions was the desire to have a stable career rather than ‘just a job’. It’s important to find a school that fits with how you work to help the process run as smoothly as possible. Since training to become a teacher, I now have a career I am passionate about. It has been great to see the children in my class making good progress and I have even been given nice feedback from parents as to how much their children enjoy being in my class!
