Well I don’t know if you can say that I am a born teacher – don’t really follow what the words ‘born ‘ to do anything means. I didn’t have a burning passion to become a teacher as I was growing up. Always been more of a person that was interested in a number of different things – one week one thing, another week (or month) something else. Liked variety, to learn new things, having new experiences.
Only decided that teaching was the way for me when I was out of my teens. Have found that I usually need to work at something – plug away you could say.
But find that challenges, learning something new really gets me going and when I am down, learning something new, ie being challenged uplifts me. Must run, need to prepare Alphie’s dinner – not nuggets this time.
