A quality education begins with the best teachers.

20 February 2014

We all remember back to our school days, and the subjects we loved based on our favourite teachers. It’s amazing the impact one great teacher can have on a child – “the power of one”! From what I remember, it was about how engaging the teacher was more so than the content they taught. The best teachers could find a way to make the most dry subjects, fun and interesting. They took a personal interest in each and every child and were there to lend a helping hand when things were a little difficult. They went out of their way to bring extra stimulus into the classroom, and most of all, they had an incredible passion for teaching.

The article below from The Sydney Morning Herald highlights the current government’s plight to provide better training to our teachers, which will hopefully in turn, create more world class talent guiding our children in the classroom.

I’d love to hear from any current teachers, on what YOU believe the government needs to do to support you and your continual professional development?

A quality education begins with the best teachers, says Christopher Pyne.
