I started with Education Queensland in 1973. I spent a few years teaching year 6 and 7 classes in Brisbane before taking over my first principal position at my one teacher school in 1979. I progressed through the principal ranks serving in small country schools, regional high schools, secondary departments until I earned my final principal posting of my city school (830 kids) here in Gladstone where I still live.
After 38 years with Education Queensland I retired from full time work in 2010. During that time I taught in every classroom from Prep through to Year 12. I am now exploring classroom practice and effective teaching in classrooms.
