About Stacy

Good day to you. My name is Stacy and I am writing to give you an idea of who I am. I graduated in December 2013 with my Graduate Diploma in Education (Secondary) from the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, with specialized teaching areas in Physics and Mathematics. While I recently earned my teaching certification, I am no stranger to education.

While earning my Master of Science from Florida State University in Tallahassee, FL, USA, I worked as a teaching aid and had my first experience as an instructor. I loved it so much that my supervising professor gave me reign to design a hybrid Astronomy course utilizing Blackboard for lecture materials and discussions, leaving in-class time dedicated to laboratory practicals. At this time online learning was not widely used and the curriculum for this course became a model for future hybrid classes at Florida State University.

I went on to teach high school physics while spending a year with a learning organization in San Francisco as a prep teacher for the standardized tests (SAT, ACT, GRE) and a tutor in all areas of mathematics, sciences, and English, as I hold a BA in English (Creative Writing) along with my MS/BSc in Physics. This position allowed me to hone my test preparation skills and enabled me to instruct students on how to take tests, how to read questions, and how to best create tests for my own instructional purposes. It also taught me how much I enjoy working in small groups with students and prompted me to begin private tutoring soon after.

When I relocated back to Florida, I joined the innovative team at a university as their Associate Course Director for their Physics Department. After two years teaching Physics, I was promoted to Course Director of Online Statistics and built and taught that course for another two years. It was at this time that I realized I wanted to tackle the challenges of modern education at the secondary school level to better understand what the students learned in high school and as I wanted a more worldly understanding I chose the University of Queensland as UQ is both established and well-known, and offered a rigorous and informative curriculum to expand my understanding of pedagogy and how to better understand my students when creating curriculum. I also spent those two years privately tutoring some amazing students, and I plan on continuing to work with them via Skype despite the time difference next school year. I am experienced in the technologies involved with distance learning as well as those that can be implemented into the classroom environment.

I am currently a certified teacher with the Queensland College of Teachers.

In addition to my educational endeavors, I also play flute and piano, write fiction and poetry, and enjoy running and Yoga.

I offer:
•Experience with and understanding of current and emerging technologies and with integrating ICT into the science and mathematics classrooms
•A passion for learning and teaching
•Strong verbal and written communications skills
•Sound leadership and teaching skills
•Excellent organizational skills
•A constantly updated approach to pedagogy
•Exceptional research abilities
