I have been teaching for over 30 years in a variety of roles from classroom teacher k-6, multi grade classes, small schools....big schools, city school, rural schools, TESOL, Reading Recovery and years of casual relief teaching
I love using technology in the classroom, and challenging all of my students on different levels. Open ended activities are one of my favorite activities. I have been a substitute relief teacher for many years and know how challenging it can be to create engaging and meaningful lessons for a day, week, month or longer.
Diploma of teaching. Alexander Mackie CAE
I loved every step of my primary education which was in England and spent my high school years in Australia. Completed teaching degree in 1976 and still going strong!!! Every day is a blessing, every child unique. I thank each and every one of them for the joy they have bought to my life.
