After a lot of thought I have decided to jump into the blogging world…I wanted to make sure that this wasn’t going to be just another thing to cram into my already over busy life. But eventually the frustration of the lack of decent and relevant content on the net has convinced me to do something to change that. (If you know of any great blogs that provide consistently great content please let me know)
I have read countless articles and blogs on various topics relating to teaching, classroom management, student motivation, communicating with the next generation (generation Y, and generation Z), lots on student engagement in the 21st century…the problem a lot of what is out there is written by beginning teachers who are writing as part of their reflection, or people who have not been in the classroom for years and are therefore not really able to speak into the daily struggles of a teacher.

Hopefully this blog will go some way to providing incredibly valuable information about what is actually working from a teacher who has over 10 years experience. I will primarily focus on classroom management, student engagement and student motivation, with a few other interesting bits in between.
A lot of the information will come out of the professional development courses I run for teachers in Australia (and increasingly around the world), but am also hoping that over time a community will begin to form that will ultimately drive the content and discussion.
So let’s get started!
