When the brick road changes again in you professional life it impacts on your personal life. As I am told today that I am part of the carnage of the 2.5% of teachers salary cuts for OTEN (TAFE) which will occur every year for the next 4 years; has an unexpected effect on me.

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

Additionally, students were required to use nametags, so that the lecturer could address individual students with questions during the lecture. This…See More
