My mum was one of those inspiring teachers who make a difference, hence I knew I could never measure up against her and so picked another career path. I make a difference to the lives of the people I work with via an Honours Degree in Disability Studies. Tamra’s right: overworked & underpaid is the norm and the challenges are huge, but every now & then, when things work out, it is so rewarding.

    My cousin’s daughter has become a Social Worker, mostly dealing with teens. She loves it & is really committed. I would just say, if you choose that path, you need to love it, because they are overworked & often underpaid!
