I have taught at a prestigious private school in Queensland Australia in a year 4 class. I then moved to London and worked at over 30 schools from PreK to Year 7.
Engaging! Learning should be filled with fun, curiosity, hard work and reward! Why would students want to learn if they are bored/ uninspired? I am a firm but fair teacher who gets along really well with her students :-)
Golden Key Honour Society Graduation GPA= 6.3/ 7
I was a deceiving student! I was bored most of the time and knew that I could give my bear minimum and still scrape by with a pass. It wasn't until I was at university that I started to get curious of what I could actually achieve when I gave my best. I ended up landing my dream job at one the top College's in Brisbane.
My experience of teaching at 30 different schools across London means that I have been able to take some great ideas and inspiration for the Aussie curriculum!
