Why do you teach?
Or for aspiring teachers, why do you want to teach?
The 'Why We Teach' series interviews 8 passionate Australian teachers about why they love their job, and how they overcome some of the pressures of the teaching profession.
Today's episode is a conversation with high school music teacher Megan Field.
Megan shares her journey of joining a foundation school as a music teacher, to then teaching subjects such as English, Maths, Science, Drama and Religion.
Here are my three learnings from the chat with Megan.
1. If you're a high school, teacher, don't be afraid of teaching subjects outside of your specialty.
2. When lesson planning, how can you create a lesson that is hands on and engaging?
3. Follow through with behaviour expectations and students will know when a line has been crossed.
