Where the STEM jobs are
Gradcracker works here's the proof
"I wanted to play a frontline role in educating the next generation in problem solving and critical thinking skills."
A student recently asked me the question “If mass is related to weight and acceleration, how can it be true objects fall at the same rate regardless of mass?”. Witnessing the moment when a student wants to find out an answer to something, either out of curiosity or to challenge themselves is the thing I enjoy most about teaching physics, and it’s rewarding to see their sense of achievement afterwards.
Before I started my teacher training year in September 2017, I was studying theoretical physics at the University of Leeds. Upon graduation, I chose to pursue a career in teaching physics because I wanted to play a frontline role in educating the next generation in problem solving and critical thinking skills.
I applied for, and was awarded an IOP Teacher Training Scholarship. Financially it has meant I can fully concentrate on my training without any money worries. I’ve also attended the supertrips and workshops which have given me tonnes of ideas, some of which I've already tried out in the classroom!
