I am a teacher because I have experienced first hand the role education can have in lifting young people out of a cycle of disadvantage. I am a teacher because my own teachers showed me the enormous impact that these professionals can have on the course of someone's life. I am a teacher because I can see myself in my students.
James Bayard is a former science researcher, now Teach For Australia Alumnus teaching science to students in Geelong.
