Gail first undertook an Advanced Diploma before completing her degree. When deciding to undertake her degree, Gail says "Only CQUniversity acknowledged my prior studies and work experience fully. Throughout my studies at CQUniversity, I have received amazing support and advice from staff and lecturers."
"My degree allowed me to fulfil my dream to be a teacher. Since graduating I have worked full-time, focusing in the early years, specifically prep. In 2010 I had the opportunity to be a foundation teacher at a new school. The experience of being involved in establishing a school's philosophy and expectations is very rewarding and educational. As a Prep teacher, I am involved in Early Start data collection and interpretation to improve learning outcomes.
I love seeing my students achieving to the best of their ability. Teaching is a very challenging career with constant changes. I am proud of my ability to adapt and adopt to new challenges. I enjoy mentoring beginning teachers and practicum student teachers."
