“While we try to teach our children all about life,
our children teach us what life is all about.”
My name is Bernadette Purtell and I am a 39 year old Uni student studying for a Bachelor of Education – Primary. I am married with three beautiful children a girl aged 12 going on 16, a boy aged 11 and a boy aged 7. I have absolutely loved and appreciated my time at uni but I must admit I am happy that it is coming to an end even though I will miss all of the beautiful people I have met there. I have a big extended family and love all of my nieces and nephews to bits and it strikes me as funny that I am at uni with students the same age as the majority of them. Who would have thought that at my age I would get to come to uni and have this amazing chance and experience! I have gained so much in my time at University and through my practicums and cannot wait to put everything I have learnt into practice. I know I will probably change everything a million times on this site before I am remotely happy with it but look forward to the challenges.
