Wordless Wednesday 11/5/16

Welcome to Wordless Wednesday 


I don’t usually add words to these  Wordless Wednesday posts believing that the picture tells the story but today is a bit different.

The quote used with my photo is very fitting at the moment.

This article tells a story which affects me and my colleagues. I rarely, if ever, talk about my work in my blog  but this is important. I am trying to stay positive and I believe that smiling in the face of adversity is the first step.

I’m known for my ‘Debbie Smile and the act of being ‘smile ready’ whenever a camera is around, but I can assure you it’s not always as easy as it looks especially when the news isn’t good.

Debbie 🙂

Debbie - mother of a 40 year old

Everyone has a story to tell! Deb is a young-at-heart & active 60+ blogger/retiree, after being made redundant from her 22-year career managing education programs in a men’s correctional centre (jail). She now spends her time reading, blogging, riding her ebike and travelling. Deb was awarded a Bravery Award from the Queen when she was 17 after a tragic accident – a definite life changing moment! She is married with 3 grown-up daughters & has 4 grandchildren. She never imagined being Granny Debs would bring so much joy to her life! You can read more of Deb’s story here

  1. Deb this stuff makes me so cross. State and Federal governments should well realise how radical changes to the way training and education is delivered has made the mess the VET sector is in. And they don’t consider relationships and trust etc being an important of the teaching/learning journey especially in the prison system. You should all advocate against the decision. Can you get support and advocacy from local members and councillors ?
    Good luck from a “fellow teacher”.

      1. I can sort of imagine. The milk price has just fallen from thin air and we are wrestling with the great unknown (again). I can’t see how our world can afford not to educate those who need reforming…I see it in adult literacy all the time…hugs…hang in there x
