Today my biology teacher asked me to teach the class about bacteria. At first I thought she was joking, turns out she wasn’t. First of all it was embarresing because I had to sit up at the teachers desk and look at my classmates, I mean that was just too weird and then I got really nervous because they were all looking straight at ME..yea my faced went bright red. I got a flash of my future considering that secondary teaching is my career choice and lets just say it was a shock as it turns out I don’t like being the centre of attention and thats just what a teacher is..all the time when she is teaching, well most of the time anyway. Then I went blank as I began to think they were all watching me. However then we all just started laughing and they told me to ask them questions, so I did and it went well.
So i’ve experienced primary and secondary teaching both before I have even left school. I didn’t feel nervous or under pressure with the primary teaching like I did today with secondary but I think that was just because they were my classmates and it was weird and also I wasn’t expecting it at all, if you knew my teacher you would know what I mean but anyway either way I still can’t wait to get my degree and go abroad to a sunny country and teach in a secondary school.
