Matthew Watson
Education graduate

“I’ve always dreamed of becoming a high school teacher. From a very young age I always had really positive role models as teachers and I was inspired by them to do the same thing.

I'm really enjoying my time in the classroom with my students. It's wonderful to see how enthusiastic they are about learning.”
