What Would We Know About Relief Teaching?

Good Question

Ok. I know. I have a good head for radio. And, as you may guess I'm older than the average relief teacher.

I started teaching in 1973. I took over my first one teacher school as principal in 1979. For the next 30 years, I progressed through the principal ranks and served throughout Queensland in primary schools, secondary departments and high schools until my retirement from full time work in 2010. I made a point of teaching in classrooms throughout my career. I have taught every grade from prep to year 12.

From 2010, I began relief work as a classroom teacher, relief administrator and special projects. Teaching has been my life for over 40 years. There is no situation in a classroom that I have not encountered.

In a nutshell,  a lot!  If you need more information the details are below.
