Personal Statement
I am a passionate, dedicated and motivated graduate teacher seeking fulltime employment
within the Catholic Education system so that I can teach within a system in which I share
common beliefs and values. My passion for working with children is reflected in the satisfaction
I gain knowing that I have the opportunity to make a difference in childrens lives. A way in
which I aim to achieve this is by building respectful relationships with students. These relationships
underpin my philosophy and practice as a teacher because I strongly believe that they build
the foundation for knowing your students and how they learn, managing behaviour, and
motivating students to become confident and creative learners.
