• During my years as a classroom teacher, I have taught all primary year levels. • During 40 years as an adult leader in Girl Guides, I held many leadership roles at a state and national level and worked with girls and women of all ages, using games to teach and train. • I developed and taught a program designed to train upper primary and secondary students in conflict resolution skills so that they would be sufficiently skilled to be peer mediators in their school. • I developed and managed a Life Skills program for Girl Guides Western Australia designed to assist girls aged 11-18 years, considered to be at risk, learn social and life skills. The e-book Social Games for Kids is a compilation of the kinds of activities and games used in this program. • I now own my own tutoring business, teaching all primary and secondary year levels and well as tutoring adults in higher education courses. • Over the past 40 years, I have used games to teach both academic skills and social skills, finding them to be an extremely effective method of helping young people to learn and retain their learning.
