I have taught a wide variety of students - during my time at my previous school (St
Marys Senior High, St Marys) I was the ESL teacher and assessed the school's ESL
requirements for the first time.
At Meriden, the wide background demographic was further impetus to my teaching to
varied background students.
As a caring Teacher, I have a proven record of being highly innovative creating resources
for use in class which are distributed across the school network and via download .
At all times, my teaching has catered for individual difference with an accent on HSC
level essay writing and study techniques.
As such, I am focused on implementing highly effective instructional practices to
improve student learning and academic performance.

04/1997 to 04/2016 Teacher Meriden School – Strathfield, Sydney, NSW
I worked as a specialist History teacher and have taught Studies of Religion at the
HSC level allowing me to expand my understanding of other faiths and cultures
which were also present in the school.
I have taught Ancient History for the HSC at a high level of learning for 25 years reflected in the school tracking statistics for Ancient History which has shown top results (averaging near 10% above state average) every year of records keeping.
During that time, the school has fostered my creativity making time for me to produce a TV show for two years.
My teaching has always been emphasised with high quality resources such as miniature figurines of ancient soldiers, recreating battles being studied and web based resources (including an entire web site and animation of different battles of the Persian Wars)
My instruction catered for large class groups as well as individuals with whom I spent much non-scheduled time to advance their learning at lunch times and out of school hours. Of course, as a school teacher, I met regularly with parents and guardians to discuss children's progress.

As the school's ESL teacher I made statistics of the school's varied cultural population as a prerequisite to working with staff to boost cultural awareness and how to address individual students' needs. I taught individual ESL students who still needed Intensive English work to further their school progress.
I helped arrange the first Ancient History HSC Study Day in the Western Sydney area.
