Hi I am a retiring primary school principal ready for a new phase in my life. I would prefer short term placements between four and six weeks.
I hope to spend 2020 house sitting and volunteering before deciding where to settle down. I have a daughter living with her family in Brisbane and want the opportunity to spend much more time with my grandson.
For the last 4 years I have been the principal of a small primary school on the east coast of Tasmania. I have been teaching for over 40 years in both high and primary schools. Over the years I have held a variety of leadership roles and taught a wide range of subjects. I am currently registered by the Tasmanian Teacher Registration Board and have a working with vulnerable people card which involves a police check.
I believe literacy, numeracy and ICT skills are the essential base skill for accessing information in a wide range of areas. However a broad and balanced learning program is essential to develop the skills and abilities to tackle the 21st century and solve everyday problems. Learning should be fun!
