The Yellow Brick Road has changed colour again

Posted on July 19, 2012 at 8:58am 0 Comments

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. As I have never lost a position of employment; I wonder where the road will lead next. I know that I have finished my practicum for my MTeach (Primary), I will be finishing my university…

Reflecting on travelling the yellow brick road

The yellow brick road is one to lead us to an adventure and we deal with the challenges as they appear with the help from others around you.

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

She was discussing how she has begun to feel defeated because  of the new requirement our state has that all students will take the state assessments on line. She was saying that this will simply murder their school performance. Her student population is close to being 100% poverty, there is no parental support at all at home, and they only get computer time in school  a couple times a week due to too few…See More
