About Me

My dream would be to own a wildlife centre filled with rescued animals. I want to be able to run after school programs or holiday programs that teach children about the animal. I want to use the skills that I have learnt through education to teach students about what I am passionate about.

My name is Gemma Lockwood. I am twenty years old and I am a first-year student at Murdoch University, studying Early Childhood Primary Education.

I have worked at a cinema for the past five years. Whilst working there I started working with the groups of students from schools and daycares. I really enjoyed working with the children and listening to there ideas and thoughts about the films. I soon decided I wanted to become a teacher. I was not successful with my ATAR studies in year twelve, so I started my university career with Murdochs OnTrack program. Once I had successfully completed the OnTrack program I enrolled in the Early Childhood Primary Education degree. Over the past year of studies, I have done a lot of thinking. It has always been my dream to work with animals, something that I can not wait to do when I become a teacher is to teach students about the importance of our world and the wildlife that lives on it. I still want to follow my dreams of working with animals but I also want to work with children and show them and teach them about our natural world.
