"Being a Health & Physical Education teacher is demanding but the work varies from teaching and coaching sport to curriculum development and meetings. I had the opportunity to teach at a rural school and now I'm the head of Health & Physical Education at a Brisbane college! It's my job to get students to be passionate about learning and I love it!"
