Upon graduating from Teachers College, I spent my first three years as Head Teacher in one teacher schools in rural Victoria. During this time I was responsible for the education of 20 plus kids from Prep to Grade 6. I then moved on to Pleasant Creek Special School in 1978 and worked there for ten years gaining extensive experience at working with special needs kids. During my time at Pleasant Creek, I worked with hundreds of kids with physical, social, emotional and psychological disabilities. I ran the Numeracy Program for teenage students at the Work Education Centre as well as the Driver Education Program. In 2007 I founded Aussie Kids Coach teaching remedial literacy and numeracy to Primary and Secondary School kids and this small business continues to grow every year.
