Why I love ECE teaching

As an Early Childhood Teacher I can look back on my week and reflect on how much I enjoy doing something so worthwhile – rather than simply to earn a living.

How I got into ECE teaching

I started out cooking in an Early Childhood Centre. I became curious as to what teaching was like and made the natural progression into the profession. 

Most rewarding moment

Being able to apply what I learnt though my studies has been rewarding. I am surprised to see that the majority of what I’m learning on the job can also be applied to me personally, as an adult.
