Pricing Analyst, Water Corporation
As a teacher, “I had a great rapport with my students, no matter their age or academic background, and I used that to leverage that into learning. I have a passion for Mathematics, for its power and beauty – and having a chance to share that with young developing minds was, in a word, awesome.”
The program offered him the gratification of doing good, and also let him build up his skills. “While I was always confident in speaking in front of a group of people, teaching helped me understand the importance of connection in building rapport and working towards achieving a shared outcome. I had to very quickly develop better time management and prioritisation skills as well as general organisation. These skills have held me in good stead throughout my career.”
Our Associates come from a diverse range of backgrounds, and many had never considered teaching before joining the program. But our community shares a strong passion and commitment in helping to achieve equity in education in Australia.
