Hi, I'm Dan
Let me tell you a little bit more about myself...
I have always loved sports and physical activity. When I finished school I completed a Bachelor of Applied Science (Exercise and Sports Science), where I fell in love with exercise physiology and training.
I then worked for a while in rehabilitation before returning to uni to complete my Graduate Diploma in Education.
While I completed my Dip Ed I taught at a secondary school in South West Sydney. It was there that my passion for education began to grow.
I have since worked at various schools across Sydney and my current position is Deputy Principal at SEDA College NSW where I oversee curriculum and quality teaching.
My passion for my students and quality teaching in PDHPE lead me to create pdhpe.net in 2015. Since then I have had the opportunity to serve as a regional representative for the PDHPE Teachers Association, as a member of the ACHPER NSW Board, and have completed work for NESA.
As my skills and expertise have grown I have begun to present at various conferences including:
- ACHPER NSW Stage 6 Conference
- PDHPE TA Conference
- EdTechTeam Google Summits
- ACHPER International Conference
I have also run various whole day workshops, including:
- Literacy in PDHPE
- Google Apps in PDHPE
- Preliminary PDHPE
- HSC PDHPE
- Flipped Learning
Within pdhpe.net I also run HSC Study days where I help students to refine their approach to study in order to set them up for success in their exams.
In 2018 I established TeachersPD, providing professional development for teachers, and have continued to run my own workshops, create online courses and provided education consultancy.
Finally, I am currently the host of the Effective Teaching podcast, providing teaching and learning strategies that help to create lifelong learners.
Below is a shortlist of other achievements:
- Google for Education Certified Trainer
- Google for Education Certified Innovator
- Certified Flipped Learning Trainer
- ISTAA Experienced Teacher
- Published "Health and Physical Pursuits" in Teaching Well: Insights for Educators in Christian Schools
