After completing my Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood Education) I commenced my career working as an educator in a community based long day care centre. Having enjoyed my time at Macquarie University it was only natural that Macquarie University was my first choice for future study. I am currently employed at The Northern Sydney Institute as a full time TAFE teacher and am enjoying the challenge of my role as a student and adult educator. I am using this course for professional development and to further my professional knowledge, whilst challenging myself in both my teaching and my learning. This course is increasing the quality of my teaching and therefore increasing the quality of learning for my own students.
