“People often look at children and they see the surface, but in fact there is actually quite a lot of investigative thinking going on. I always saw children as complex beings, who had rights and who had feelings and who I should try to understand. That side of me helped me as a teacher. I am sure I’ve made many mistakes that I’m not even aware that they were mistakes. We just stumble through life and do the best we can. I think I would have to start my life again. With the things that I’ve learnt it would be so much better.”
