International Grammar School
Primary Teacher & Head of Teacher Accreditation
Sydney Australia
I am a Primary teacher from Sydney, Australia. I have been teaching for over 30 years. I have a passion for teaching Literacy through Drama. Drama enables enactment which can enrich student understanding of story, going beyond surface meanings and developing deeper understandings. It allows students to imagine, explore, communicate, reflect and understand themselves and the world around them. It gives them opportunities to be involved in collaborative and cooperative activities and step Into another person’s shoes. They can solve problems in a social context and of course find enjoyment in their learning. My other passion is working with students on independent learning projects. I believe that student-centred learning promotes successful outcomes for all students, of all abilities. It takes students beyond the classroom, to ultimately appreciate the acquisition of knowledge, inciting passionate and creative learners. These projects can not only enrich students’ education but equip them with the confidence and willingness to drive their own learning and take risks.
