I recently quit Secondary teaching; I mainly taught Digital Technologies subjects for 5.5 years (private & public Secondary schools) with much passion and possibly too much idealism. I am now focusing my energy on my family and completing a Masters of Education (ICT and Digital Learning). I am keeping my options open, but in 2020 I will likely pursue a career back in either a tertiary institution or IT industry.
EDUCATION: I have a 3-year Diploma in Business Communications – Information Technology and a Bachelor of Education (Secondary) Degree. I am currently working to complete a Master of Education (ICT & Digital Learning).
EMPLOYMENT: I have worked previously as an IT Analyst/Specialist at EDS Canada and also as a Tertiary Educator at Durham College, Canada. I have been employed as a Secondary Educator from 2014 to mid-2019. I worked various full-time contracts with Education Queensland state schools and over 2 years at Somerset College. I also volunteered my time in the role of QSITE Treasurer for 2 years and mentored numerous Primary & Secondary teachers to help them effectively integrate ICT in their pedagogical practice.
