I’m about to leave the university and starting the Teach First programme – this is my journey.
I want a way to record my thoughts and experiences away from the academics of assignments and papers, and to share the highs and lows. Everyone who’s heard of Teach First knows how hard it is, and I don’t really think I’ll fully understand quite how difficult it will be until I’ve started! But I’m so excited for the challenge, and to be able to start making a difference in a very real, practical way.
I’m in my third year of an Archaeology and Ancient Civilisations degree, and am coming to a major turning point. Whilst essays and dissertations are piling up, life ‘on the other side’ is drawing ever closer, and I can feel the change starting already. The working world beckons – I can’t wait! If you’d like to get in touch, please do. Perhaps you’re doing Teach First, or are going into teaching yourself!
