About:I live on the outskirts of Melbourne. I love the way I can just look out of my window and see gum trees, hills and bird visitors (kookaburras, magpies, rosellas, cockatoos, blue wrens and many more all visit occasionally) - plus kangaroos with their joeys. I taught Reading Intervention at a local primary school for 12 years, and I enjoyed the challenge of finding new ways to motivate and help my students. I have set up several websites to share my teaching resources and ideas (and some fun things), such as computer jigsaws: www.epuzzled.net ; www.free-fun-n-games.com and www.poems-for-children.webs.com. This year I've been writing a blog on teaching reading: http://readingshouldbefun.blogspot.com.au/ I also run a site for folk-style guitar and basic ukulele: www.cathyschords.com.
