Thanks for checking me out.

Below are a few things about me and some of my achievements. I'm told this is the place I am meant to brag a little, so you know I'm not just another consultant.

Who am I?

I'm Dan. I began teaching in 2006. I've worked at multiple schools and have been in multiple different positions from classroom teacher, to subject coordinator, to deputy principal. Now, I like to run workshops, network with teachers, attend and present at conferences, create online courses, host a podcast and I even managed to write a book.

Some personal things: I married my high-school sweetheart at 18, I have 2 awesome kids (whom I homeschool😀), I live in the beautiful Blue Mountains west of Sydney. I love permaculture homesteading, have three goats, 20+ chickens, a bunch of quails, and grow plenty of food.

I also am very happy to laugh at myself, enjoy having fun, and am into Jesus as well as my health.

What I do

I enable and empower teachers to become Effective Teachers. This means they:

  • have a good life balance

They are NOT:

  • exam-focused
  • a "yes" person
