I love the "OH" moments when educators link research with practice. You can see the moment they understand why the children and adolescents they are working with learn and behave the way they do. Knowledge for knowledge sake is useless if we do not apply it to the benefit of our students. Knowledge is more than content, it is more than words we deliver in the classroom. The purpose of knowledge is to improve the wellbeing of each individual, to maximise their autonomy in becoming independent, productive and happy individuals.
My passion is for those students who do not learn like others. Those who face difficulties and challenges within our education system and within society. Every child has the human right to equal access to education however despite our best intentions many of these children continue to face daily obstacles.
My goal is to empower educators to question taught knowledge and ask questions not to necessarily challenge the education system but to empower and increase the wellbeing of all students.
