About Me!

Hey! My name is Holly and I am a third year student of my Primary Education degree and I can’t believe how fast the first two years have been!

I decided that I wanted to become a Primary School teacher during a two week work experience working in a Nursery setting in Year 11, however had never considered going to university until I started Sixth form, where we had weekly meetings about UCAS and personal statements. From the end of year 12, I decided it was time to start considering the right university and course for me to help me in my future career in teaching. After speaking to my careers adviser, I realised that if I wanted to do a Primary Education degree at University, I needed more experience to even be considered as an applicant. So, I volunteered at a local primary school one afternoon a week. This not only helped me gain more valuable experience needed for the course but I realised how much I loved the setting of the school and that it was definitely what I wanted to do in the future.

Picking a university was also quite challenging as lots of different universities offer similar courses. However, after going to several open days and lots of different universities, I decided that Greenwich was the one. I loved the location of the placement schools and the modules that were to be taught.
This year the workload has certainly increased and placements are be much harder, however, it’s exciting to think that this time next year, hopefully I’ll have a class of my own J.
