Charlotte Nixon: Aspiring Teacher

Charlotte was born and bred in Ouyen, Victoria. She’s now studying to become a teacher at Flinders University in Adelaide. She’s passionate about become a great teacher, and about encouraging others to be the same.


Milestone Event - 

Charlotte put herself out there and became a Rural Youth Ambassador with the Country Education Partnership. “It lead me to figure out that teaching and education is what I am passionate about, and it allowed me to extend my ways of thinking.

“I’m a people person. I love being surrounded by great friends and I love to help out others, whenever I can.


On Ouyen - 

“The sheep that live on hills don’t actually have two legs longer than the others – thanks for letting me believe that until I was 14, Pa…”

“Coming from a rural community, your freedom is a huge advantage. School-wise, small class sizes were a great benefit, and your teachers can get to know you and the way you learn.

“The lack of inspiration and aspirations for kids is a pretty big problem. There should be more of a push for children to dream big.


Charlotte's Advice - 

“Don’t be scared of your dreams. If they do scare you, work hard until you achieve them.”
