My name is Kylie, I am studying the Master of Teaching at Southern Cross University.
I’m a single mum, I work full-time. I needed to have a course where I could work in with my life. After being a designer for 20 years, people were asking me to teach them programs and art and I didn’t quite feel ready to do that. I started to talk to different teachers and talked to them about the type of courses that they did and I contacted Southern Cross University and I chose this course because I was able to do it full-time and part-time if I needed to.
I am really looking forward to becoming a teacher. I particularly like the idea of being able to pass on what I have learnt in my career to my students.
We’ve explored so many different aspects of it and we’ve had some excellent professional experiences as well. I found all the lecturers really inspiring they really helped me when I needed any kind of support. They were always ready to reach-out and were very available.
When I moved away the online learning was perfect for me. All the course materials, all the articles have been online, so Southern Cross is quite accessible like that.
Online learning to suit my life. That’s Excellent.
