'The variety of modules on both of my degrees, from contemporary issues in education to educational technology, from philosophy of education to equality and inclusion put me in the best possible position to begin my teaching career. All the modules taught me to be critical, which means in the classroom I always put my students first when new initiatives are implemented.'
