I work at Bendigo Senior Secondary College. We have approximately 1900 Year 11 and Year 12 students. Helping each individual move on to further education or employment is a true concern for all of us. I found that reflecting on my own aspirations and experiences when first getting into teaching has helped me understand where the students are at. Compared to many, many students, I was privileged to know my destination and I had many people who supported me on my journey.
