TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been a primary education teacher in Queensland Australia. I have taught all ages from 5 to 13 including a year in a 1 taeacher school where I was the only teacher for 13 students in years 1-7. I have worked as a Mathematics Education Advisor/Consultant for the past 15 years in Catholic and State schools mostly in Queensland, Australia. I have also taught undergraduate teacher education students at University.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Inquiry. Real life links to development of the conceptual understandings that underpin Mathematics.
