I find myself in my eight year of teaching English at a comprehensive public high school. Having completed my B.A at Sydney University in 2003 and being the mother of a vibrant 18 month old son, I chose to complete a Dip. Education via distance education at University of New England. In 2004, whilst working towards my teaching qualification in English and Drama, my husband and I welcomed into the world our second son. In 2005 I was fortunate enough to begin working fulltime at my current school.
Whilst the years flew by with many varied teaching experiences, I can only really say that I feel that I have become a ‘true’ teacher having established a twitter PLN in August 2009. Since the introduction of DER my edu world has expanded before my eyes and I now engage in daily discussions about education and learning.
