Master of Teaching (Secondary)

I chose to study the Master of Teaching (Secondary) at UWA due to the excellent reputation of the Graduate School of Education and my positive undergraduate experience at the university. I also felt that being able to complete my teaching degree in two years, rather than one, would provide me with a more comprehensive understanding of educational theory and valuable practical experiences before entering the classroom on my own.

The highlights of this course were the fantastic in-school practicums and the quality of lecturers provided by the Graduate School of Education. This allowed me to feel supported whilst out in schools and during my studies and receive a highly valued and internationally recognised degree. I was also very privileged to be a recipient of the Christchurch Grammar Initial Teacher Education Scholarship which afforded me the opportunity to spend additional practicum time in schools learning from passionate and motivated educators.

I am currently working as a Humanities and Social Sciences teacher at a private girl’s school and I absolutely love my job. Teaching is such a varied profession and no day is ever the same. We have the privilege of not only educating our students, but contributing to pastoral care and the extracurricular life of the school. Being able to engage with young people on a daily basis and contribute to their education experience is both challenging and rewarding and has provided me with a great sense of fulfillment in life.

I believe studying the Master of Teaching (Secondary) at UWA prepared me very well for my career as I was able to gain theoretical background knowledge and practical experience in teaching prior to entering the workforce. This made me feel confident when entering the classroom on my own as a qualified teacher.
