I am a retired secondary teacher with science and maths as my main subjects. I taught in rural Victoria for all of my career. My wife is also a retired teacher who taught English in secondary schools. In 2017 we had a 5 week placement on a station in southern Queensland working with two children. One was in year 7 and one in grade 4. We felt that we were able to support the children and their parents with school work and things on the station. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
