Personal statement

I’m currently a Lecturer in Early Childhood Education in the School of Education, Faculty of Arts-Education, at Deakin University (Geelong – Waurn Ponds Campus) Australia. I’m studying for a Doctor of Education degree at University of New England (UNE), Australia. You can find out more about my research interests and activity on Research Gate  and ORCID.  Like so many people working in higher education and research I get stuck too much in front of a computer screen. This “sedentary insanity” to quote Steve Paxton (founder of Contact Improvisation) needs vigilant and playful resistance! I maintain sanity with regular embodiment breaks: meditation, yoga, dance, mindful nature and ocean walks, cycling, gardening, surfing, kayaking and more. I love to blog when I can as The Kindergardener.
