About Me

I started teaching in NSW primary schools in 1991, first as a classroom teacher and now as an assistant principal with a full-time class as well.Working in a school is never boring and I still enjoy the daily challenges that teaching brings. I’m continually learning, and that’s what keeps it interesting.

I am passionate about the of role public education in our society.

I am keeping this blog to reflect upon my teaching journey, to share what I’m learning and to learn from others. I’m trying to grow my professional learning network by making connections with other educators. I’d love to hear from you.

All opinions published here are my own, and do not represent those of my employer.


My Other Blogs and Projects:

EduTweetOz – Australia’s rotation curation Twitter account, which I administer with 3 other teachers. Each week we choose a different educator from around Australia to host the account.

Teachers Education Review – I co-host this Australian based podcast, reviewing and discussing issues in education.

OneRegard – this was my first blog, and is really just a random, reflective journal which I occasionally update.

Corinne Loves Music – Music is a passion of mine. I use this blog to record my musical memories and share the music that I love.

  1. Hi Corinne,
    While you may not necessarily know me, I am one of your blog followers and I have my own blog at davidw.edublogs.org which has a Middle Years focus.
    I’m wondering whether you would care to help out with a small project. The post on my blog that gets the greatest number of hits through google is the one on forgetfulness in teens. This post is basically an article I wrote for parents at my school some years ago and contains a few tips but it is by no means comprehensive.
    That’s where I’d love you to help out.
    As someone who is passionate about the Middle Years and early adolescent teaching, you will likely have a few tips and ideas to help parents, teachers and students deal with adolescent forgetfulness. We all know that, in part, the issue comes from the brain reorganisation and development of that age group. But we also know that there are simple, practical things that can be done to help.
    If you have the time and inclination, I’d love you to email me a paragraph or two of these tips and ideas. I’m writing to a few bloggers and asking them to do the same.
    I’m hoping that, in a few weeks, I’ll have a reasonable collection what I can incorporate into a post on my blog. I will, of course, point them back to your blog as well.
    Hoping to hear from you.

    • Hi David,
      It’s flattering of you to ask me to help out, but adolescent forgetfulness is not an area I have any expertise in. For the last 10 years, I’ve worked exclusively with students in the K-4 years, so I’m afraid, I won’t be of much assistance.

      All the best with your blog. I’m sure it will be great.

    Hi Corrine,
    I have stumbled across your blog and think it is extremely refreshing and helpful. I am just starting my career as a casual classroom teacher K-6. The info throughout this site is so spot on and user friendly. It has helped me a great deal. Thank you for the high quality. I’ll be passing it on to my fellow new graduates. Kind regards, Simone
