Apply yourself…write, every day of your life 19/365

Describe your last attempt to learn something that did not come easily to you.  

So write, every day of your life wants me to tell you about this.

I’ve been a teacher for many years (15 years now) and a student for many, many more.

Deciding to go back to university and do a second masters was not a decision that I took lightly.  When I started it two years ago the reasons for doing it were to help me with the aspect of my teaching job in Country Town that had me working with the three cherubs with disabilities that were at our school every day of the week.  The silly thing is that there were a number of students with un-diagnosed disabilities as well as students with hearing difficulties and any support they received from me was very limited, however I had taught a number of them whilst teaching Reading Recovery.

Planning, preparing and working with students with disabilities was interesting to start with, no matter how well you planned with you wanted to do in the hour you were with them you could guarantee that 99.9% of the time that it wasn’t what they wanted to do and they would yell, scream and fight over it.  It was a long, hard battle that was fought on an almost daily basis.

So I made the decision to do some study in students with disabilities and I’m glad that I did.  I’m glad I made the decision to do medical based education subjects on topics such as intellectual disability and sensory impairment focusing on hearing and vision.

It hasn’t been easy, but it’s been thought-provoking and to an extent enjoyable.
