Behind the blog:
I am a former PDHPE (Personal Development, Health & Physical Education) teacher that worked within the education system in Australia for over two decades. I have a Bachelor of Education (PDHPE) from the University of Wollongong and have previously worked as a Head Teacher of PDHPE at a high school with approximately 1200 students.
I am passionate about education and mental health, and have been lucky enough to teach in a state in Australia that provides a curriculum that focuses on the ever changing needs of young people in society. What I have noticed over my years of teaching, is that not everyone has access to the concepts that I get to teach on a daily basis and I want to use my experience and expertise to open it up to the global community.
Being able to enhance our own mental health and build our resilience is such an important life skill that should be taught every where in the world to both young people as well as adults.
