My teaching career commenced in 1980 as the principal of a one-teacher primary school in North Queensland. I have spent time in larger NSW primary, secondary and tertiary settings. I have also been self-employed for 15 years as the proprietor and manager of a private tuition service supporting up to 200 students weekly. I now work part-time to support tertiary educators in online course design and delivery. I enjoy working with students to assist with their development of foundational literacy and numeracy skills and utilising ICT tools to enhance their learning and the development 21st-century skills. My part-time work is rewarding but I also enjoy volunteering and caravan road trips when Uni is not happening (Nov-Feb & Jun-Jul).
