The ‘Teaching Opens Doors’ Campaign features teachers and students from a range of public schools across NSW, highlighting how teaching has ‘opened doors’ to a range of opportunities within and outside of the classroom.
One of the teachers featured in the campaign is Jessica, teacher in a NSW public school located on the Central Coast.
Since becoming a teacher, Jessica has found one of the most rewarding aspects of her career to be supporting students both inside and outside of the classroom. Becoming a Year Advisor has allowed Jessica to fulfil her personal teaching philosophy of providing a positive schooling experience to students, guiding them to reach their full potential at every stage of their schooling career.
Jessica has also benefited from the flexibility that a career in teaching can provide. Notably, Jessica feels empowered to grow her family due to the department’s generous parental leave entitlements.
Upon her return, Jessica is keen to develop her newly acquired skill set since completing her Masters of Teacher Librarianship.
