Nearly 3 years since my last confession, no sorry, blog

Posted on December 12, 2014 at 9:30pm 0 Comments

It has been 3 years since my last confession/ blog. I have had several enriching opportunities. I hold on to my involvement in establishing a Special Assistance School as a landmark in my teaching career. I learned the value of educational leadership from within the teaching team. The opportunity to design a whole school curriculum that was innovative and made sense to students who were at both ends of the spectrum but at the school because of life circumstance.…


The Yellow Brick Road has changed colour again

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.

Lack of Teacher and Principal Voice is the real problem with School Imrpovement

My study contained interviews of 13 principals and teachers from across the United States who have experienced school improvement at some level. I did this study because in my own district, at the time that I started this study, 31% of the schools in my district were still operating in failing status and this just didn't make sense to me. All schools in…See More

Do you have a spending problem?
