Goals for 2019

2019 is upon us, and there are lots of things to look forward to this year. Below are just a few of the goals I want to achieve, this year. I'll check in every 3 months, to see how I'm going.

Hello 2019

2019 is here already! We have hit the ground running with lots of exciting things planned for the year. It's been a bit hot in Sydney these past few weeks, so stay tuned for some ideas around using opportunities for communication, in the hot weather to stay cool! We have been busily setting up our new office, and enjoying the nice, large space (and air conditioning!) We are excited to offer some professional development opportunities for teachers this month too! We've been preparing for the NDIS and its safeguarding committee. We also have been busy planning out our PD for the year - including already submitting one conference abstract! And we've been very happy to get back and see some fami
