To develop an awareness of your own biography into teaching

Aim

To develop an awareness of your own biography into teaching

Reflection

Think about your own journey into teaching. Write a brief summary of your story as we have done at the beginning of this chapter. Ask a colleague to do the same. Together, look at the influences on your decisions and decide if there are any factors that relate to your own students and indeed family members. If you are already teaching, what advice would you give to someone thinking about becoming a teacher? If you are just beginning your teaching career, what questions do you have about this profession that you could ask a more experienced colleague?
