Hi everyone, Im looking to gain some advice, I am 20 years old and as of October this year I will be studying BA (Hons) English Language and Literature and then looking to do my PGDE after I graduate, which of course isnt for a good few years yet. I hated english at school and to be honest I didnt even like school nor was I the best behaved person in school, which looking back on it now, I do regret and would love to be a teacher that gets kids engaged and excited in lessons whether its their favourite subject or not. I studied my TEFL qualification and I found it really interesting both on the actual English Language but also the teaching metholodgies etc.. Once I finish that qualification I really decieded that teaching is something I might actually be good at and really enjoy hence going on to study my degree. I am just looking for some advice from people who maybe joined teaching a little later in life compaired to people who went straight from school to uni to become a teacher, or anyone else who didnt particularly enjoy school and then went on to to be a teacher, what was your experience like? how did you find it? and just any future advice you may have for me. Thanks!
