The ability to influence children’s lives during a vital period in their educational and social development was what motivated William to enrol into the Master of Teaching Early Childhood at UWA.
After graduating with a degree in Politics and Social Sciences from Sussex University in the UK, William completed a Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA), and spent several years teaching English and managing language schools in Eastern Europe.
In 2012 William moved to Western Australia where he decided to pursue a degree in Early Childhood education at UWA.
“In addition to discovering a love of teaching the younger years I realised that I needed the stimulation, variety and challenge of teaching a single class for the year. I could lead the children through a multitude of topics and see how they progress.”
“Positive changes effected by the teacher and the school itself can bring about lifelong improvements in children's lives, both in and out of school. To observe these changes in children is extremely humbling and what makes my profession rewarding.”
William graduated from UWA in 2014 and was awarded the Bill Louden Early Childhood Prize.
“The Masters of Teaching degree at UWA provides an in-depth study of teaching theories and practices. The degree is very well respected by employees who are keen to see the high level training put into use in their schools.
William is currently a teacher at Highgate Primary School.
