After her undergraduate studies and travelling to the UK and US, Ruth enrolled on the Master of Teaching (Secondary) Internship. Aspiring to become a specialist or leading teacher in her field, Ruth has found the internship exhilarating and challenging, with a highlight being the strong relationships forged with her school, fellow peers and students. She reflects, "Because we’re in our schools for the full duration of the course, I have had the opportunity to implement what I’m learning about through the intensives and when researching for assignments over an extended period of time, with students that I know."
