I’m proud of the positive and continued relationships I have built with students, many of whom have achieved significant success in their own professional capacity after their graduation. I pride myself on having built meaningful relationships with students over the years and I also acknowledge that my own growth and learning is deeply connected to the privilege of having interacted in a formalised learning and training space. Such interaction has been formative in my own practice-based research. I believe that forging a synergy between ones own practice and ones teaching practice is essential.
