Find out about year 3 student Maxim Oweyssi’s experience undertaking a teach physics internship in London through The Ogden Trust.
As far as my internship goes, if someone asked me a few years ago, whether I see myself teaching children, my answer would be a decisive no: “because I want to do research” I would say. However, after having the chance to prepare and teach lessons on my own, I have to admit that there is something intriguing about the prospect of becoming a teacher. Putting aside the altruistic aspect of contributing towards the knowledge of future generations, I found the actual work fulfilling. There is something immensely satisfying about that “aha” moment when your students finally understand a new concept – they have that Archimedean eureka look in their eyes.
