TEACHING EXPERIENCE

With over 35 years of classroom experience my ‘Dare to be Different’ approach was developed through constant reflection and a passion for creating classroom management strategies that provide successful outcomes for teachers and students. My role as a Leading Teacher encompassed curriculum development and assessment and reporting. I taught students from the beginning years of school through to Year 7 including special needs and gifted and talented students. My role also included Acting Principal throughout my career.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Teaching with a Feather brings together proven techniques that stem from my life long inquiry into how to be an effective teacher. Teaching with a Feather focuses on creating a positive classroom community of learning that encompasses decision making, problem solving, independent thinking and being a valued member of a team. Teaching with a Feather strategies are designed to enhance, and use to advantage, the Physical and Communication Environment you and your students create in your classroom. The strategies are applicable across the curriculum and will make a positive difference to your school day. Teaching with a Feather introduces new ways to 'stretch student's thinking' and 'grow their minds'. Each strategy can be used separately or combined together to provide you and your students with new ways of thinking beyond the traditional approach to teaching. Use the strategies every day in your classroom and watch as every student in your classroom achieves positive outcomes. You will feel more in control by giving control to your students. Select a Teaching with a Feather strategy and get started. Note: New strategies will be added regularly.
