“During my placement at a local high school, I learnt so much about the teaching profession and I came to understand how much work a teacher has to put in to run an effective lesson. I also learnt the impact teachers can have on their students, in particular the ones with special needs. Enabling them to have every opportunity to achieve their very best in the classroom is such a fulfilling and important role.”
