I was on a Science Learning Hub course November when I heard about the Primary Science Teacher Fellowship. It sounded so exciting, I could tick off all the boxes for eligibility so I applied.
Life was hectic- reports, school camp prep, a bereavement, but I managed to throw an application together. Things rushed along, and down at Marahau (on School Camp!), at low tide, (because that's where cell phone coverage is) I found out that I would be at Niwa for Term 1 and 2 this year.
6 months out of the classroom, working amongst real scientists!
