Luke Mollet - Bachelor of Teaching (Middle)
"I chose middle years teaching because I felt as thought it would allow for more creativity in the class room, to actively have students engage in fun, creative class work. I believe we have a variety of world class educators, passing on their knowledge to really prepare us for the workforce."
Imogen Cox - Bachelor of Teaching (Secondary)
"I loved science at school, and had really enjoyed volunteering with kids so I really wanted to go into teaching. I also think a lot about the future and educating the Australians of tomorrow to better our country. What makes my degree unique is all that is being done to encourage our engagement and use of technology. My degree offers so much professional engagement - it’s not just about the content, but also how to fully prepare for a career."
"The Internship Program has given me an amazing opportunity to learn as much as possible about teaching before I enter the workforce. The program allowed me to work with the students months before my placement. So when placement began I had already built student-teacher relationships, taught successful lessons and prepared content for teaching. The staff I worked with have been great mentors for my teaching practice; their support, advice, encouragement and enthusiasm has helped me grow as a teacher. I am so thankful to have been a part of this program and would highly recommend it for all pre-service teachers."
I would first like to thank you for the support and guidance you have given myself and the 2020 teaching cohort across this year. It has been a challenging time for everyone and we could have not done it without the tireless effort from you and the education team. I feel lucky to have had my placement completely unaffected by the circumstances of this year, and I believe this is a result of your hard work in organising and negotiating our placements within the schools around Adelaide. Your dedication has given me the opportunity to be qualified for Term 4 this year, which I am extremely grateful for. So a big thanks to you!
I loved my placements at Heathfield High School this year. It was a fantastic school to work at across Professional Experience A and B and I felt extremely well supported by my mentors,the staff and my uni liaisons. I am lucky enough to have been offered a small Term 4 contract at Heathfield and I am excited to take this opportunity to continue teaching there as my first teaching position.
This year was fantastic for me and I could not have asked for a better placement experience, or more support from the education staff at the University of Adelaide.
