‘In a culture that sometimes equates work with suffering, it is revolutionary to suggest that the best inward sign of vocation is deep gladness – revolutionary but true’. Parker J. Palmer 2007.
Teaching and learning have been in my blood all my life. Both parents and my eldest brother were teachers, but I have not really reflected deeply on the process until recent times. Three ‘chapters’ have prompted these reflections:
- My PhD research at Melbourne University, Victoria, ‘Putting them into the hands of God‘, a case study into a wonderful Christian school
- Leading three Christian schools in three Australian states and starting my own education business
- Pioneering the first teacher training award, the Master of Teaching (Primary) in Alphacrucis College
