TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been a classroom teacher in Australia since 2001 and have taught K-3. I started self publishing digital resources for education and early-learning in 2005.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I pride myself on creating a calm and happy classroom. I use various visual aids to promote positive behavior and like a good solid routine in the classroom! I like to see my students engaged in high quality learning experiences that they are excited about! Apart from the amazing experiences I have had with my own students in the classroom one of the most loved parts of my career has been learning from more senior teachers. A particular characteristic of the area I teach in was the relatively high average age range of teachers when I graduated and entered the field. I have spent many treasured hours grilling them on 'the good old days' and absorbing as much practical knowledge from their years of experience as I have been able. This has been invaluable learning for me and as teachers, the most wonderful resource we have is each other.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I graduated university with first class honours.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I earned the Outstanding Entrants scholarship to study at The University of Newcastle. I chose to study Education and have a double degree - Bachelor of Teaching/Bachelor of Social Science - specializing in Early Childhood Education.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am having so much fun designing high quality printable teaching resources and graphics that are classroom and teacher friendly! Please visit my 'sister-store' Graphics From the Pond'.
