Why did you become a teacher?
As Novopay issues plague the education community, debate rages over class sizes and the Government faces controversy over national standards data, we want to put the focus back in to the classroom and to the dedicated men and women who hold our children's futures in their hands.
What motivates you as a teacher to get back in the classroom despite all these issues? What are your joys and your frustrations? Tell us about some of the moments that have made it all worthwhile, or made you reconsider.
We'd love to have some stories from teachers, created by them and with the children in their schools. It could be a video story or a written piece with some lovely photos from your school... join our assignment by hitting the green button.
