I’m an experienced educator having 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 journey is essential for an educator.
My students know I reflect on my teaching to improve my practise. 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 and contains no photos of children.
