I am passionate about primary teaching, science education, technology education, and working with teachers to become competent and confident teachers of science and technology.
I completed a Bachelor of Science (Psychology), a Graduate Bachelor of Education (Primary), and hold a PhD in science education from the University of Queensland. In my research, I examined the claim made in many curriculum documents around the world that “learning science helps people to make good decisions.”
I was a primary school teacher with Education Queensland for 6 years, teaching in remote, regional, and city locations. I also developed and coordinated several courses in the Primary initial teacher education programs at the University of Queensland. Today, I am proud to be working with teachers seeking to improve their confidence and capacity to facilitate inquiry experiences for their students in their classrooms.
I reserve the right to change my mind.
