Social media is such a powerful tool to connect educators from across the globe. I consider myself lucky to be a part of so many great chats on Twitter and to be a part of such a meaningful professional learning network. I have recently taken on a new role as one of the moderators of #satchatoc which takes place every Saturday morning in the Asia-Pacific area. I came across the work of Greg Curran, an educator from Australia, during one of these chats. Greg is a highly reflective person and takes his role in education very seriously.
Although I had never met Greg, I asked if he would be willing to complete a Good Teaching is LIFE reflection for a series that I have set up on my website. Greg gladly accepted and took the time to write up a great LIFE reflection. I'd like to thank Greg for taking the time to do this.
A Bit About Greg Curran
For over 25 years, Greg has roamed the intoxicating field of education. From Elementary education to Community Education to TAFE (Tertiary and Further Education) to University. Often in combination with each another.
From generalist teacher to English as a Second Language teacher to academic. He has been a manager too.
Greg's specialities include: Health and Well-being, Literacy, English as a Second Language, sexual diversity, marginality and student voice, activism, and workplace education.
Recently, he qualified as a Life Coach, building on his earlier counseling degree. Greg helps educators to Thrive - to be their most passionate, driven selves - through his coaching, training and writing - http://teacherremixed.com/
