I’m an experienced educator, and have taught every year level of primary education in Australia (a number of times). I consider myself a constructivist. Someone asked me if I had a favourite year level, and my answer is always, that I love teaching the group of children in front of me. Every age has its own challenges and rewards.
I have welcomed numerous teachers into my classroom, trialled resources, and presented to various forums. I believe educators must remain informed about current teaching and learning pedagogy to grow professionally, and for our students. Education is ‘action research’. Trialling new ideas, seeking ‘best practice’ and being on a constant ‘learning curve’ is essential for an educator.
My students know I reflect on my teaching to improve my practise, and I encourage them to tell me their ideas and reflect on their learning. My blog is where I share my reflections. I started this blog as part of my Web 2.0 Professional Development, under the guidance and mentorship of Jenny Luca. To the many who know Jenny, you’ll know how fortunate I’ve been.
I’m always delighted to receive comments, and have collaborated with, and made many wonderful connections with educators locally, across Australia and globally. My blog is primarily for educators, contains no photos of children, or my school’s name. I originally had the name of my school recorded, but received too many enrolment queries, and that was never the intention of this space.
