A teacher helps her students in Pakistan.
“Although I have been a teacher for 25 years I am still learning. I value my colleagues, who amaze me with their dedication, enthusiasm and competence. My special interests include diverse learners and learning environments. I love working collaboratively with teachers to trial and reflect on teaching practices. Following our teaching sessions (during our reflective moments), we congratulate, commiserate and try to ascertain which practices and strategies make a difference to student learning and why. This ‘micro’ teaching is balanced by my interest in a curriculum which touches the affective domain – the ‘macro’ elements of education. These ‘big ideas’ are expressed in the cross curriculum priorities and general capabilities in the Australian Curriculum.”
