Behind the blog:
I am a PDHPE (Personal Development, Health & Physical Education) teacher that has worked within the education system in Australia for nearing two decades. I have a Bachelor of Education (PDHPE) from the University of Wollongong and am currently the Head Teacher of PDHPE at a high school with approximately 1200 students.
I am passionate about education and mental health, and I am 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, 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, and this has become no more apparent than over the last 12 months.
