Well I guess a big ‘Hello’ seems in order, as this is my first attempt at blogging…
My name is Maddelyn, I’m a pre-service teacher in my third year attending the University of Southern Queensland. My university time has been inconsistent and long!
I started university enrolled in a Bachelor of Human services, I changed to Education, changed to Business and changed back to Education! I know it seems like a lot of jumping around, but this final change back to a Bachelor of Education seems to have set me straight and kept me on task for over a year and a half now. Personally, I think I needed to feel a little bit confused and misdirected in my studies to really understand what career and experiences I wanted to get out of university. Now I can confidently say there’s a light at the end of the tunnel and in my head, that light helps me to picture myself teaching in a primary classroom where I can hopefully extend and offer all my students the same confidence, acceptance, love and support as I have had throughout my learning journey.
I’m looking forward to the opportunity to debrief my days and experiences to you, blogging friends, and I hope you enjoy getting through the semester with me.
