Season Finale: What an Extraordinary Year!

Season Finale: What an Extraordinary Year!

I’ve had to do a lot of talking this year, but what I want to say to you today – my reflection on 2020 – is short and sweet:

  • This agency is extraordinary.
  • Our learners are extraordinary.
  • We really nailed the ‘together’ part of our brief this year.
  • And as much as we inspired and supported our learners, they (and our families and communities) kept inspiring and supporting us right back.

Let’s take some rest, recharge, and choose to be extraordinary again in 2021. But before we do, listen to this end-of-year wrap-up episode of the podcast.

We'll be back in 2021 with more stories about those people who teach, learn and live in Tasmania.

Extraordinary: A Celebration of Collaboration

Extraordinary: A Celebration of Collaboration

In this week’s episode of the Teach, Learn, Live podcast Tim interviews Brent Armitstead, Jamie Synnott and Gay Cumming about their reflections of the department's response to COVID-19.

Communication, collaboration and wellbeing are the key themes in this episode as the panel talks about supporting schools and learners with new technologies during a very uncertain time.

This episode coincides with a state-wide celebration of all staff as we recognise the hard work and efforts of staff throughout 2020.

World Teachers' Day 2020

World Teachers' Day 2020

Welcome to a special edition of the Teach, Learn, Live, Live podcast. 

Today, we're celebrating teachers for World Teachers Day. 

Teachers change the world. The ripples from what they do every day in the classroom flow through the lives of individuals and of generations.

Throughout my public school education, I've had many great teachers who both supported and challenged me. But most important, it was their belief in what I could achieve. If we want Tasmanian communities to be strong and vibrant, education is front and centre and teachers play a really important role in that. I come to work every day inspired to work alongside teachers who are working hard to have more of our learners learning more every single day.

Thanks for joining me today as I interview students in public education right across the state to hear what they think is most important about their teachers.
