This was an interesting unit. Watching Di's story about a child who the head teacher turned a blind eye to and undermined her curiosity about science, does relate to me. I, too, have witnessed how teachers ignore a child's quest for knowledge. As teachers, we have the biggest role model and source of inspiration for our students. I hope that we not only provide a source of inspiration for our kids, but we actively take part in encouraging and supporting our students' aspirations.

I find it interesting that students do not share their aspirations with their peers. I wonder whether it is because students do not have any career aspirations when they are at school or is it just not the norm to discuss career options/aspirations with peers. I also found it interesting that there is not much conversations happening at home with kids about their future aspirations.

As the older of 6 siblings and as an immigrant child, who started schooling in Australia in grade 11, I was the first child in my family to attend university. the experience was surreal. My younger siblings all followed the path and they all graduated from uni. They still say I had a very positive impact on them

As an immigrant student and now a teacher, i found this unit really relevant and interesting. I was the first one to go to university. It was really hard as my parents could not help me make a choice as what to study. I became a teacher by chance and not by choice. But I am glad it happened.

As someone who is a teacher and a student at the same time, I have always appreciated the 'growth mindset' approach to both learning and teaching. If i dont know the answer to a question, i acknowledge it in front of my students and encourage them to search the answer and educate me about it.
