I have 45 years of teaching experience in Australia and England. I am a Specialist teacher of students with Learning Difficulties K-12 and a Specialist writer of reading and writing resources for students with reading processing difficulties, as well as all mainstream students K-10. I have been the Principal of a special school and mainstream primary school leading staff through curriculum change over a 20 year period. I have also been a Specialist disability consultant leading all regional staff through curriculum change in Mathematics, English and Language areas over a 15 year period.
Having taught in many schools across the Sydney area, my focus has always been, and will always continue to be, in providing exemplary teaching strategies and resources for teachers, so that the educational experience of their students is an enjoyable and successful one. I promote collaborative team teaching approaches – highly innovative and motivational strategies.

Yet to be added
I am a passionate teacher and writer. There can be no greater sense of achievement than in sharing the educational journey of children as they progress through school. I am also the owner of Vandernoot Press, a publisher of educational resources for schools, teachers and parents. The resources that I have developed over the past sixteen years are specifically designed to allow all students to progress well, enjoy their learning and ultimately to develop their confidence and competence across all literacy domains, whether they are struggling students or require advanced academic opportunities. I am now in a position to make my resources available to a much wider audience, which I am very excited about.
