I am a teacher working in Sydney, Australia, and this of course is my blog. Here, I offer a new perspective on education and the issues facing Australia and the world today. I do not pretend to be an expert on any subject, and my commentary is provided as-is and without any guarantees that you’ll enjoy my opinions or think they’re worth reading. Nonetheless, I hope you at least enjoy your stay here on this website.
Occasionally, there will be guest posts regarding a number of topics—usually related to education. Some of these guest authors might be people I’ve worked with in the past, while others might be authors who I highly respect. That being said, many of the opinions and viewpoints expressed by my guest contributors may not be in-line with my own personal views.
Now that we’ve got all of the preamble out of the way, I am happy you’ve found your way to this website, however you arrived here. I am passionate about public education in our country, and I truly believe that the key to solving many of the issues facing our nation today comes down to providing the next generation with a better education. With access to more resources and information than ever, the coming generations are blessed. To have access to the Internet and such a wealth of knowledge would have been truly inconceivable to generations past, and even to my own generation.
I actively evangelize for increased funding for education and science in Australia, because I believe our nation will prosper as a result of a greater understanding for technology and for past and future. You’ll find a lot of nonsense on this site regarding these topics, and I hope you’ll put up with some of my ramblings and become an active reader and commentator on my blog.
