So, I’m thinking about going rural for my teaching placement but there are a few things that are making me unsure.
I’ve grown up in cities all my life and. I’ve never lived in a regional town or had to deal with smaller communities.
I hear a lot about the ‘culture shock’ beginning teachers often feel when they begin working at a rural school. How are rural and city teaching culture different? Will I be on the outer just because I’m from the city? How can I integrate myself, so that it’s not so much of a shock?
