La Chât alumna into La Chât teacher

My friends at school always said I’d become a primary teacher.  I didn’t believe them, despite the CAS hours spent in the primary school and time spent with children in general. Who wanted to work mostly with women for mediocre pay? But with a BA degree, a PGCSE and a year in marketing under my belt, I ended up teaching all the same.  Now I’m completing my first year of teaching at La Chât – in my old school, my old primary school. No one is more surprised than me about that!

I love teaching here and rarely a day goes by when a fleeting memory of my own time at La Chât doesn’t pass me by when I’m teaching, marking, doing playground duty, when working with my CAS student, walking the children to the caff, listening to late homework excuses and the like. It gives teaching a rather unique edge. I suppose it had always been my aim to come to teach here, once I’d chosen my career. And though I had mixed expectations about how it would be, I can safely say that so far, it has been everything I hoped it would be and more.  I feel I can appreciate all the changes and developments from both a student and staff point of view. So the pool has fallen into ruin, but if all goes to plan, we’ll have a new sports centre soon!  Needless to say, I won’t be going anywhere in a hurry just yet. There’s too much to see and enjoy!
