Sofie’s family travelled to Armidale for the celebration, bringing an end to four years of dedicated study.

“I have always wanted to be a teacher to help young children achieve their dreams,” Sofie said.

“All children learn differently, so it is about finding ways to teach to their individual needs and strengths.”

Sofie said practice teaching was a large part of her coursework which allowed her to gain classroom experience at schools in Newcastle, Taree, Bulahdelah and Karuah.

“I am grateful to the staff that I worked with at all the schools,” she said.

“The experience and insight they have given me over the last four years has made me the teacher I am today.”

Since completing her degree, Sofie has enjoyed working as a casual teacher in schools throughout the Myall Coast region.

“I am loving it, the kids are great,” Sofie told News Of The Area.

“I am getting a lot of experience across many different subject areas.”

With an obvious passion for inspiring young minds, Sofie said she is looking forward to a long and successful classroom career.

“I am going to keep learning and keep on enjoying the experience,” she said.
