Case study

Hanif Islam, Teach First Ambassador

“I used to have this thought when I was an accountant: when I’m on my deathbed, and I look back at my career, could I say I’ve done something fulfilling? Now that I’m a teacher, I can say I’ve changed people’s lives (…) I joined Teach First because it was a quicker route to the classroom. I knew it was going to be hard, but I also knew it was going to be the one where I learned faster. And I wanted to give something back. All teachers do that of course, but I’m proud to be helping the community my school serves. I feel like I’m really doing something with my life.”
