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
- are passionate educators
- do hard work
- love their job
- are student and future focused
They are NOT:
- slaves to the system
- a "yes" person
How I do it
I provide support, professional learning, and empowerment for teachers through:
- Networking events
- Books (Work Less, Teach More)
A few things from my resume:
- working as a deputy principal
- publishing my first book Work Less, Teach More
- becoming a Google certified trainer and innovator
- working with NESA
- founder of TeachersPD
- founder of pdhpe.net
