A little about yourself...
In the real world I am a mum, a wife and a special education teacher (And lots of other things, but I’ll just stick to those three for now.) In my fantasy world, I am a guitar playing rock star and a famous artist. In my spare time I …um… I…um… Okay, so I don’t have spare time. But I do like to think I invented the idea of the mum’s “Crumple Effect.” It’s that feeling of exhaustion you get after a long, hard day when that never-ending list of nightly chores still lies before you. It’s that feeling when you would just like to crumple into a tidy little heap on the kitchen floor and stay there for a while. No movement, no thought, just a crumpled (little) mass on the floor. Ah yes…welcome to the Crumple Effect.

During those moments when I am not crumpled on my (very old) kitchen floor, I plan to blog about practical ideas I have come up with and come across as a special education teacher focusing on language and literacy. But wait, there’s more… I would love to share some of my useful parenting tips and ideas – particularly those relating to cultivating great routines and habits at home for successful learning.

I am the teacher at school and the mum at home, but if I stop and listen really carefully, it is the children who teach me, inspire me and guide me towards those answers I am always looking for. Those are the answers I wish to blog.
What kinds of things do you typically Tweet about?
life, kids, home, parenting, succesful teaching strategies
What are your areas of interest?
mommyhood, blogging, special needs children, writing

Educating Boys

Recently we were privileged enough to spend 5 hours doing professional development in the company of Dr Ian Lillico from Boys Forward Institute. We covered a lot of material in five hours and it was hard for me to select which aspects of boys’ education to blog about because he made so many valuable points. One would hope that all teachers are already giving lessons that are exciting, enjoyable, rewarding and…
