I have been teaching Primary and Middle School students Mathematics for 5 years. I absolutely LOVE Mathematics and teaching students to enjoy Maths as they learn through fun, engaging activities! I am also a sessional tutor at Griffith University running GradDip Edu students Mathematics Education Subjects.
I like to keep students engaged in their learning and use an assortment of resources to keep students engaged. Especially in high school, students still need hands-on engaging activites to encourage and allow them to enable their best learning.
We don't have awards in Australia, but I have some mugs from students that say 'Best Teacher' if that counts! :)
I left school and went directly to Univeristy studying to be a teacher. Once I completed my degree, I taught year 6 and then moved onto teaching Mathematics to middle school and senior school students. I'm also completing my Master of Eduation and also take Mathematics tutorials at Univeristy to Undergraduate and Postgraduate Education Students. I love every area of my teaching and especailly love completing my Masters.
I'm a step-Mum to a beautiful 8-year old and love spending time together as a family camping and cycling. "The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires".
