Vendor Information

I have been teaching for over 40 years in a variety of roles from classroom teacher k-6, multi grade classes, small schools....big schools, city school, rural schools, TESOL, Reading Recovery and years of casual relief teaching. My teaching niche is helping relief/substitute teachers in their role which can be a very challenging one at times. My resources are designed to engage, enthuse, impress and continue the learning that is happening in the classroom. I have written a number of teacher reference books that will help you to navigate your way around the internet to find the best and most valuable resources for you to use in your day to day teaching, whether you be a full time,temp or relief teacher. I love using technology in the classroom, and challenging all of my students on different levels. Open ended activities are one of my favorite activities. I have been a substitute relief teacher for many years and know how challenging it can be to create engaging and meaningful lessons for a day, week, month or longer.

I loved every step of my primary education which was in England and spent my high school years in Australia. Completed teaching degree in 1976 and still going strong!!! Every day is a blessing, every child unique. I thank each and every one of them for the joy they have bought to my life.
