Hello new followers...

Happy New Year everyone and may 2017 be amazing for us all.

I have so many new followers that I thought I would take the opportunity to re introduce myself to you..


I'm Paula from Paula's Place and have been teaching for a looonnnng time! I love my job, it is different every day and we never never stop learning.



I grew up in NSW in a town called Murwillumbah. I went to Teachers College in NSW too.
I started teaching in the mid 80s (yes a loooonng time ago) and taught in a large country school in Queensland. I spent three years teaching in Biloela. This is where I met my husband.


We moved to Victoria, where we both teach in schools in Ballarat. We have two kids - both at Uni.
I love to travel and have been fortunate in the last six years to go to America, Fiji, Malaysia, Bali and Singapore.

   

I am currently on a road trip with my daughter - we have travelled from Ballarat to Northern NSW to see family and we will be off to Brisbane on Wednesday, then Noosa, Coffs Harbour, Canberra and then home.  This is a great way to spend our summer break.


I have taught every year level and in the last six years have taught Prep for three years, 5/6, 3/4 for two years and now I'm heading back to 5/6. In 31 years I have either moved schools and/or classrooms every year! (I'm pretty good at packing and setting up).

I got into blogging in 2010 as a way of recording and sharing my learning space. 
Colleagues convinced me to put my work on TpT in 2011 and I have loved every part of this amazing journey. I have met so many teachers through this and have made some great friends around the world. 

My TpT store has been a passion of mine and I love the design process of each product and matching it to the learning needs of my students. There are products that go from K-6.

I forgot to mention I am addicted to vans...in a big way. I refuse to count them, as I could incriminate myself. 


Have a great summer everyone in the Southern Hemisphere and our Northern Hemisphere followers  keep warm and safe.

  1. Nice! You're on vacation! Does NSW mean New South Wales? Is that like a state/province? I can't believe you've been to the Grand Canyon - I hope to get there some day myself! Enjoy your fun travels!
