I have been an educator for over 40 years. Initially a primary school teacher, then teacher librarian I have taught in both primary and secondary schools in the public and private sector. I have taught in regional Western Australia (Halls Creek DHS and Exmouth DHS) as well as a number of metropolitan schools. As a library advisor and curriculum consultant for DETWA I travelled throughout Western Australian providing guidance and assistance to schools in library management, information literacy and curriculum development. More recently I have been a research assistant and sessional lecturer in Learning Technologies and Scientific Inquiry as part of the Bachelor of Education Program at Curtin University.
