There was a new app that I found the other day called 'Over'.

It has pre-populated ArtWork that you can put 'over' your images.

During the Supermoon a couple of weeks ago, I was playing around with my newfound camera skills to take a photo of the moon at night. I have never been able to work out how to take a photo at night without lots of blurriness. 

I am so very proud of this shot. There is a clear picture of the moon and because the sky around it was so black, on its own the photo looked like a poster. I have used 'Over' to add the word 'Dream' to the image.

Putting it together it got me thinking about my dreams. Why I became a teacher? What my dreams are now. What's interesting is that my dreams are still the same...I want to teach.

When people ask me when I wanted to become a teacher I think back to sitting in the spare room, little blackboard in front of me while my brother and sister sat on the floor following my instructions. There was pen and paper involved, but other than that I can't remember what I was asking them to do.

I always wanted to be a teacher. During high school I swapped and changed a few times, but it was teaching that I always came back to.

In high school that was because I wanted an excuse to teach Shakespeare.

Today, it's because I want students to have the best opportunity to learn. To be challenged. To reach their potential. I'm constantly learning new things and am never bored. There's always a new challenge.

It's still my dream. I want to teach. I want to be involved in education. I want to support students to learn. 

I can't imagine wanting to do anything else.
