I graduated from a Bachelor of Teaching course in 1992. Since then, I have been both a Primary School (Elementary) Teacher and Physical Education (PE) Specialist in Australia, England and (currently) Cambodia. I also ran a small business as a 'Learn to Swim' teacher for a short time. In the late 90's I was employed by Scripture Union as a Primary School Support Worker for three years (whilst on leave from teaching).
I am a big believer in the 4L's of education: Live wisely (toward yourself, others & the environment), Like (yourself & others), Laugh (with others & at yourself) & Learn (relevant skills, concepts & information). Everyday, I try to incorporate the 4L's in/ out of the classroom.
My 2 daughters think I'm great...most of the time. That's enough for me :)
