Dave Waddell - Teacher Information Technology
WHY DID YOU BECOME A TEACHER? As a teacher of high school students, we see the transition of our students from young kids to young adults. Its rewarding to observe this and to share in this exciting part of their lives. Its a fun job and I like the unpredictability of young people (most of the time!).
WHAT INSPIRES YOU AS A TEACHER? Speaking to present and past students about their successes in life. Particularly bumping into former students who tell me about their study, and work successes. As a teacher, you feel a small part of this success. It's also cool when a class is learning a new skill on the computers, they are quiet, then as the excitement grows they start showing their friends what they are creating. That's great to watch.
WHAT'S SO GREAT ABOUT WORKING AT BUNBURY SHS?I think the feeling of community you get from teaching at a school that has a long history in town. Many ex-students send their kids to us, some going back generations. I also admire how Bunbury High performs well both academically, in sport and in cultural activities. We have a lot to be proud of.
WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURITE QUOTE? A man that chases two rabbits, catches neither. (Chinese Proverb)
