Interview with Gary Pennick, design and technology teacher Age 28. Comes from Whitby, North Yorkshire.

Did you originally set out to be a teacher?
You were happier studying on a more general course?
Why did you decide on teaching?
How did you get into it?
Then a teaching qualification followed?
And now you're doing it for real?
What's the best thing about what you do? Would you say teaching was a good career to go into?
What about the bad bits?
And the financial rewards?
They do grow with your experience; they're not that bad. Of course I know people who are working as graphic designers and earning more but it doesn't tempt me. I enjoy what I do and I'm happy with it.
Have you any advice for someone considering a career in teaching?
And do you look forward to work everyday?
