Do you work in the education sector? What is your role?
I have been an educator for 26 years. This is my second year as curriculum coordinator at Lahore American School. My job covers - planning & implementing professional development workshops, supporting teachers: planning, developing unit of work, establishing learning centers, centralising school resources. I also am responisble for coordinating family curriculum sessions: literacy, maths, science & Technology, earth day. I am the MAPS (online assessment) coordinator & trainer. I also report weekly to the Principals of the different sections of the school & montly to the school board. I began my career as a classroom teacher at a local cathollic school in Adelaide in 1985. During my time in Australia I took part in state and Australia wide action research projects. In 1977 I secured my first overseas job in PNG at the Lae International school (TISOL). I stayed there for 3 years. I then moved to Jakarta where I was employed at a local private school (PSKD Mandir) as a 'leading teacher'. The school was established as an on site training school for local teachers. During my 8 years the school gradually expanded from early childhood to year 11. My role was to support and guide the teachers in implementing a curriculum which was child centered, innovative, applied current education theories and practices. I would met individually with teachers fom early childhood to year 11 and help them plan their lessons, units etc. I would also spend time in classrooms modelling & generallly supporting teachers. I was also responsible for ordering resources for the entire school. After leaving Jakarta I moved to Shanghai and returned to the classroom for two years as part of a team of year 1 teacher.
