After almost 10 years as a high school teacher, I left the profession demoralised and I opened up a cafe! I learnt a lot about business, myself, leadership and communication, but also had a sense of unfinished business in education.

After some soul searching, I decided to re-join the profession, but this time as a primary teacher.

One of the major issues I had as a high school teacher was seeing so many disengaged students and I wanted to see if I could get to the heart of the problem.

Since then, I have fallen down a “rabitthole” of research on the science of learning.

I am now committed to supporting as many educators as possible in becoming more evidence-informed, so that they can apply it to their teaching.

Schools are complex places and rather than trying to figure everything out for ourselves, we need to share and collaborate.

Everything I know now, will not be the same as what I know tomorrow.

What I write in this blog, may not be right, but it is part of the process. Join me on this learning journey!
