Science Alumni Sharing: Steps to become a Science Teacher

In the evening of 15 January, 2020, five alumni came back to CUHK after a full day of hard work and lessons to share with more than 70 fellow students their life as a science teacher.

Alumni entering the field for a few years shared how they embark on the journey as a science teacher. The very first step is to get well-prepared during your undergraduate studies, that is to grasp every single opportunity that you can be in touch with students so as to get yourself familiar with the subject curriculum and the school setting. The first tip also unveiled the importance of having internship and teaching experience. Next, do think of ways to stand out from the crowd in your postgraduate diploma applications and interviews. Among the many tips that they shared, the most significant one is to always remind yourself the spirit of science and the essence of science education.

The experienced science teachers generously shared what they have gained after being a science teacher. They also unfolded the reasons why some of their peers keep their perseverance as teachers while some finally chose to leave the education field, reiterating the essence and belief that a science teacher should have and hold in order to develop the career into a lifelong one.
