What subject do you enjoy most and why?
I value subjects that embody creativity, logic, and discovery. In my view, all my subject choices reflect this, and so truthfully I really don’t have a “favourite”. I enjoy Maths and Digital Technologies as they’re based on logic and reasoning; I enjoy my Chemistry, Biology and Physics classes as they encourage discovery and expansive thinking; and I’m fond of subjects like English and Health/P.E because of the creative freedom these classes give me.
What subject do you find the most challenging and why?
I find the experiments and practical side of Chemistry tricky at times due to how still your hands need to be, and how precise your measurements must be too. Despite this, Chemistry is still one of my favourite subjects as it has given me useful real-world knowledge, and information for my future career path (which I hope will involve the sciences). I like challenging myself. Who knows, maybe I’ll develop steady enough hands to become a brain surgeon...but that’s just wishful thinking for now!
What have you read recently?
I love to read a good book! My favourites as of now are: ‘I’ll Give you the Sun’ by Jandy Nelson, ‘All the Bright Places’ by Jennifer Niven, ‘Eleanor & Park’ by Rainbow Rowell, ‘Me and Earl and the Dying Girl’ by Jesse Andrews, and ‘Phantom Limbs’ by Paula Garner.
What is your definition of a good teacher?
To me, a good teacher is an educator who wants to pave the way for their students’ futures and is someone who is considerate enough to ensure that all different kinds of students are provided with enough support to do so. In short, a good teacher reflects the teachers that I’ve had throughout EGGS.
