Why did you decide to train as a teacher?

Teaching was always something I was interested in and loved through my PhD. 

Why did you choose to train with the University of York?

Having been at the University and living in York for the last 8 years it was an easy decision for me. I love this university and this city.

What have been particular highlights of your training so far?

There are so many aspects of this course that I'm really enjoying - meeting new people, experiencing new things, and really jumping into teaching with both feet.

What advice would you give to current University of York undergraduates in your subject area who are thinking of teaching and considering doing their training at York?

I would recommend going and observing some lessons, or getting involved with some outreach in schools to help you decide if teaching is for you. The U.K is currently crying out for science teachers so if it's something that has even flickered briefly through your mind, I would give it some serious consideration.
