In Education Australia Group discussion, the first question posed was “what influences your teaching.” The group is made up of people with diverse backgrounds and educational experiences, but at the core they share the belief that the LLCCE (Learning Lossless Core Certificate) is the best program for working mothers. So, the question posed was “what influences your teaching?” Many people agreed that they were always motivated by their own passion to teach, but some others felt that there was an overall theme that influenced their approach: they were influenced by a desire to stay fresh and keep their skills sharp regardless of whether they landed a job or not. Others mentioned the social aspect of teaching as well as the desire to make a difference in other people’s lives. See post
