I have chosen to become a teacher because my physics teacher was the most inspirational teacher I have ever met. He introduced me to the world of physics and engrossed me into its abundance of fascinating information and knowledge.

I am fairly young and therefore believe that I can bring something new to the teaching of physics and the way that many students envisage the subject.

Being awarded an IOP Scholarship is a privilege in itself as it has provided me with a lot of self-belief. In addition to this, being on the IOP scholarship programme gives my PGCE more status when selling myself to future employers.
