    Kristal Bruniera

    Master of Teaching and Learning (Primary)

    By spending 11 weeks on my placement before completing my studies, the school and the staff really got to see what I was like as a teacher and how I constructed my classroom. That really helped me obtain employment with the school after graduation and it gave them the opportunity to see if I fit with their values.
