Self-appointed director of staff morale

I am an educator, a mentor, a husband, a writer and the

. These are roles I take very seriously, despite using an opportune “dad” joke to keep things moving along smoothly. Teaching is more than a career, it’s an opportunity to make a difference in a child’s life – for some it’s a chance to change the trajectory of their future. For this reason I’m passionate about that animal that is the education system and the teachers that are its lifeblood. I created I’m a New Teacher (@imanewteacher) to instil a sense of value to the work that teachers do every day, to help new teachers overcome obstacles and to support teachers in progressing in their careers. Great teachers establish creative and stimulating environments for the world changers of the future. My teaching experience has varied from low socio-economic government school contexts to wealthy independent schools across Sydney. I hold a Bachelor of Arts in English and Education from the University of Sydney and a Master of Teaching from the University of Western Sydney. I am a lifelong learner and am currently undertaking a Graduate Certificate in TESOL and a Diploma in Work Health and Safety. I am just about to complete my Master in Instructional Leadership at the University of Melbourne. My beautiful, talented and funny wife/editor, Aziza Green, and I live in South Sydney, where we mentor young professionals and university students at our local church. In my free time, I like to write, laugh and connect with friends and family
