Homework Challenge E2 - Interview someone who is in a job that interests you

I decided to complete homework challenge E2 which is to interview someone who is in a job that interests you.  I decided to interview Paula as she is a Preschool Teacher and I enjoyed my work experience so much I thought this would be interesting to find out more about being a Preschool Teacher.

First I designed a questionnaire and then interviewed Paula.

  1. What is your name? - Paula Wilson 
  2. What is your job? - Preschool Teacher
  3. How long have you been in your job? - Over 10 years
  4. What made you interested in your job? - I started baby sitting while at High School and I enjoyed working with  young kids.
  5. Did you always want to be a Preschool Teacher? - No I first thought I wanted to be a nurse but very glad I choose the path of a Preschool Teacher.
  6. What qualifications do you need for your job? - Diploma of Teaching Early Childhood Education and I also got my Teacher Registration. Teacher Registration is optional but beneficial and also means a higher pay.
  7. How long was your training? - 3 years, mainly practical placements in the third year.
  8. Where did you go for your training? - NZ College of Early Childhood Education.
  9. What is the best thing about your job? - Working with children and it is lots of fun watching them grow and develop.
  10. What are the things you don't like about your job? - Paperwork and staff meetings.
  11. What was one of your best moments at your work and why? - Having grateful parents that appreciate the job you do.
  12. What is the hardest thing about your job? - Talking to the parents when a child has behavior issues / problems.
  13. If I was interested in doing your job for my career what would your advice be to me?
    • Make sure you get your qualifications including teacher registration
    • Be prepared to dance and sing with the children
    • Be a good role model and get involved with activities with the children.
