Greetings. I am an educator on a mission, to return learning to its rightful place for children. We can (and I do) make learning experiential, where text plays a supporting role in this form of profound and purposeful play.
We’ve textualized knowledge and throw it at youngsters, then grade their IQ over and over again. That’s not how they learn. This has been proven over and over.
Together, we can increase the scope of my mission . When you believe education can and should be brought to a better place,please share my mission. Thanks.
Check out my profile on EA, my Facebook, Flickr, etc. I’m in EA to build up my social network and get the word out. Working 14 hour days makes this a challenge. So, friend can you spare a click, a like, or some eaves? Please tell me how you would like to support my avocation.
Favourite thing to do is spend time with our somewhat large family You can find me on Facebook, Twitter & LinkedIn
The personal stuff
Born in Brisbane Australia, at the age of 5 my parents moved south and we lived in Muswellbrook before moving to Sydney & Newcastle. Our family eventually settled in Nelson Bay, Port Stephens & it is here I would say I grew up.
Our family owned and operated, hotels & restaurants in all of these locations, which is where from a young age I gained my hands on business experience. From the age of 10 I experienced every facet of these family businesses living in hotels, assisting my dad with a range of duties before hotels open each day. From 18 I assisted in more of the daily routines of running hotels & restaurants, enough so that at the age of 21 I decided this was not the life for me and made the move back north to the Gold Coast.
After a couple of jobs, Managing a Health Resort & then a lifestyle job which saw me spend my days teaching people to water ski, take them horse riding, playing golf, sailing, jet skiing etc. It was time to get back to business and so started my professional career, you can read all about that here on LinkedIn.
These roles have taken me to numerous places around the world to experience the best and worst of International companies & people, you can follow my travels here on tripit! The best lesson I learned from this travel experience is there is no substitute for integrity and never compromising on your morals & beliefs, and of course that there is no place on earth like Australia!
I was kind enough to not include the raw and rude notes. I did not include the names.
Perhaps Facebook should screen these robots off the profiles…..ya think? These are the ones in the last half hour.
