Introduction: Casey

Hello everyone! My name is Casey and I am very excited to be one of the contributors of this wonderful blog made for and by Australian teachers. 


You may be familiar with my blog, Little Lifelong Learners where I started posting during in my first year of teaching and then my TPT store was born!


5 Facts About Me

1. I have lived in Sunny Queensland for my entire life. I grew up on 12 beautiful acres with my parents and grandparents on the north side of Brisbane.

2. I met a boy in Grade 12 Geography class and we've been together ever since! 
 3. On the 27th of May 2014, I became a Mummy to a beautiful little girl named Lilly-anne. She was born 6 weeks early and is our perfect little miracle. I am really enjoying being at home with her, but I often get into trouble off my husband for being too 'teachery' with her already. Is that even a word?!


4. I have a passion for photography. I ran my own business while I studied teaching at University and photographed newborns, babies, children and families. I even photographed a few weddings! For now, I just photograph my own family =)


5. I have a serious obsession for slushies and chocolate. It's not abnormal for me to grab some chocolate from the fridge for breakfast or a Frozen Coke from McDonald's on the way to school. So naughty but so delicious.

 

My Teaching Career

As a child, my favourite thing to play was schools. My Mum got me a little blackboard and lots of blank workbooks. She even set up a little work table where I could teach my hesitant little sisters and cousins. I would set projects for them and mark their work while they napped.  It was the best fun!

I also came from a big family of teachers. My Great Grandmother was a teacher and my Grandfather was the Dean of Education and taught in many different positions at lots of different schools. My Mum taught for many years before I was born but stopped for 20 years to have children and started back when I began teaching at university. I also have two aunties who teach Prep and Grade 1. You could say teaching is in my blood!

My biggest supporter - Mum!
I finished my Bachelor of Primary Education with honours at the end of 2011 and began teaching Prep/Kindergarten at my local school in 2012. I stayed at this school for two years and absolutely loved teaching Prep. At the end of my second year, I fell pregnant and decided to become a relief teacher. I spent the first half of 2014 experiencing many different grades and schools. I feel like this time really developed my behaviour management strategies!

 While I take some time out from teaching, I am enjoying working on new resources for my TPT store. I have been running Sensory Play groups from my home and have been developing some teaching and learning resources for parents of young people. I'm currently working on my first board book. Watch this space!
