I never expected to become a teacher.
After graduating from Sydney Univeristy with a BA (Hons), I worked for a couple of years before “going bush”. When I started working as a governess I discovered that I enjoyed teaching, so studied for a Grad Dip Ed. After teaching in public schools in the Northern Territory for two years then in Queensland for ten more, I moved back to NSW with my family in 2009. Currently I’m working as a casual teacher in the Coffs Harbour area.
It’s time for a change in direction.
I’ve always enjoyed helping my students discover the joys of literature and I’m excited by the educational possibilities developing in the digital world. So in 2010 I’ve begun studying by distance education for a Master of Education in Teacher Librarianship with Charles Sturt University.
This blog is for my reflections along my journey to becoming a teacher librarian.
