Woodstock Primary School - Hamilton
- Bachelor of Teaching
Hannah was always around children during her own childhood. "My mum is from a big family and so I was always playing and looking after children and from that I knew teaching would be a great job for me. I always wanted a job where I could make a difference and help people."
Hannah completed her Bachelor of Teaching at the University of Waikato and currently teaches at Woodstock Primary School in Hamilton.
"The University was a great place to study; I enjoyed learning from people who had been teachers and could share their experiences. I learned so many different ideas on teaching, how to work with children, and more about human development, including languages, art and sports and how to bring that into the classroom. I felt well prepared to enter a classroom and apply theory to real life situations."
"The the most rewarding part of my job is seeing children improve daily in every part of classroom life including interaction with peers, improvements in their behaviour or success in their learning."
