It is nice to meet you....

I am a Secondary Humanities teacher currently teaching HSC Geography and Business Studies. I have taught most HSIE subjects from Stages 4-6; and I am also an accreditated Religious Education teacher. I have a keen interest in Studies of Asia and how that can be incorporated into teaching programs.

My current studies are Master of Teaching (Primary) at the Australian Catholic University (full time).

I look forward to my PLN growing and developing.

Claudine
