2017

2017 has been fantastic year so far! I have my own class at Willsden Primary School, year 2, which I am thoroughly enjoying. It is a challenge with such diverse learning capabilities. The children themselves want to learn, some are just slower at learning than others, and it is up to me (at this stage anyway), to close that gap! I am starting to get into Geochaching now that my ankle has healed, so look out for pics on my travels around the state.

2016

2016 started off with a car accident on the highway between Port Augusta and Adelaide on the 22nd January.  I was on my way to see my mum in the Royal Adelaide Hospital only to be admitted myself.  I sustained a crushed Tylus bone in my Right foot.  On the 9th of May I was told I could begin to put pressure on my foot.

2015: With a new year comes a new job....

2015

I am now in a new job, teaching Science NIT at a primary school in Port Augusta in a category 1 school. Although the job itself is at times quite stressful, I am enjoying the relationships I am beginning to build with the students. How they are gradually starting to change their current view that Science is a time to muck around and not a time for learning, that it is not always boring (well hopefully not anyway).

So, I am no longer an Itinerant Teacher, and though I miss travelling around the countryside, I am loving the more permanent feeling of staying in one spot and the kids come to me.

April 2013, Stuart Footprint



This year I have great delight traveling up the Stuart Highway, visiting families between Port Augusta and Coober Pedy in South Australia.  Although the scenery stays fairly constant, it has a raw beauty.
At Mt Eba Station.
This is an old bomb shelter properties near Woomera had to build years ago.  The army used to test their rockets and would notify each property and everyone then had to sit in their shelters and wait out the tests.  This one is at McDouall Peak Station, South of Coober Pedy.
