Teacher Training Personal Statement Example 2
I am applying for these courses because I believe it will help me succeed in my dream to become a teacher. I have always craved teaching and learning, one of my first memories is of me, around the ages of 4 teaching my toys how to count and taking a register, ever since then I have known I wanted to be a teacher and nothing was going to stop me.
When I completed Wilberforce college I did not have enough points for a university course and I was also 3 months pregnant, so I took sometime out of education to concentrate on my daughter, once I felt ready I started education again, this was with the Open University, where I am currently studying children’s literature and understanding society to help me achieve the extra points I need.
Whilst I was at Wilberforce College I completed a BTEC National in Health and Social care, I loved this course, I loved learning new things constantly and I loved the fact it involved work placement, during this course I have particularly enjoyed the modules on Psychology, Equality, Diversity and Rights and Microbiology.
Undertaking this course has prepared me for the academic challenges, which I may face in university life. I did over 100 hours of work placement, 1 week and the ****** residential home and 1 week at the ******** residential home and 2 primary schools, 1 week at ******* primary school and 1 week at ******* primary school , I enjoyed my weeks at the residential homes, I enjoyed getting to know the residents and being involved with the day to day activities.
I got on very well with the staff and residents, but it wasn’t where I wanted to be, when it came to the school’s I couldn’t wait I could finally fine out if what I had being dreaming to be is what I enjoy and wanted to do when it came down to it, and I can joyfully say it is, I loved every second of my time there, I gained the trust of the pupils which meant the allowed me to work alongside them with ease, I created a good bond with the teachers as well, at the end of my weeks I received good feedback from the teacher.
That’s why when I get onto a university course, I know I will give my all and bring everything I have to it because I know at the end of it I’ll get to do what I love doing. I am a good listener, independent, organised and self disciplined which should prove invaluable preparation for life at university.
I have a calm caring nature, with a positive, smiley attitude towards life. I enjoy socialising with my friends and meeting new people. I enjoy listening to all sorts of music; I like watching films, and spending time with my daughter, watching her learn and grow always bring a smile to my face.
