Did you always want to be a teacher you were small?

Since the age of 3 I have always wanted to be a teacher. I love children and teaching is very important to me. My Dad was a Head teacher in a primary school. My Mam is a retired Primary teacher and my sister is Head of Science in a secondary school (even though she said she would never be a teacher). So I have come being in a teaching environment. I have taught in Primary schools. I was a supply teacher for a while and now I work In a Special Needs Secondary school. I have links with a school in Uganda and have been out to teach in the school during my holidays which is very different – no computers, very few books and paper.
