Title: Listening to Tree
Author Name: Cullen Jennifer Anne
"Prior to becoming an art teacher, I received a scholarship to study at the Tasmanian School of Art, graduating 4 years later with a B.A. Fine Art Teaching in 1978. A decade later I studied for a Dip. Ed. in Early Childhood Education, U.T.A.S. Over these 40 or so years, I have taught in secondary and primary schools throughout Tasmania, from Bruny Island to Burnie; from Lauderdale, to Launceston and many in between. Areas I have specialized in are; Visual Arts K-10, Materials, Design and Technology K-6, Literacy K-3, EAL, Co-operative Learning, and Early Years. I have designed, coordinated and lead programs for parents in Literacy learning and professional development programs for teachers in Co-operative Learning, Literacy, Social Skills and Visual Art. I have held senior positions and written curriculum content in Literacy and Visual Art."
