I began my teaching journey in 2000. It has at times been a bumpy ride, with lots of amazing challenges along the way. I have spent many years working as a mathematics specialist teacher and have taught across the primary grade levels. Right now, the Australian Curriculum is challenging me to adjust the content I cover and match learning tasks to this.
I am a relaxed teacher and I love to chat, so my classroom is a hive of conversation and cooperation. I have love to pepper my lessons with cooperative learning structures. Most learning programs I develop involve an inquiry approach as I believe if students can learn to inquire they will always inquire to learn.

At the moment I teach a year six class and am working with my colleagues to address the learning needs of the students from years 5 to 7 in the mathematics learning area. I am also excited about developing resources for the Australian History Curriculum. Come and visit my blog at www.OzCurriculumHQ.com.au When not working, hang out with my two boys and husband.
