JJ is a Master of Teaching (Secondary) student, teaching Mathematics and Junior Commerce. He chose these subjects in order to boost his students' confidence in learning Mathematics, helping them realise its importance and changing their perspective. Discussing his teacher placement, JJ says, “Nothing compares learning to practical on-site teaching, and the placement program has been an integral part of my learning – putting theories into practice. I have learnt so much within a short period, gaining insight from mentors and maturing my own skill-sets.”
