Podcast Episode FOUR – Simon Le Plastrier

Simon Le Plastrier is the headmaster of a school in Melbourne’s northern suburbs. Simon was a teacher of mine throughout my high school education as well as a mentor in my years as a teacher.
For the past four years, Simon has helped to shape his own school into a unique haven of creativity and learning. Walking through the grounds on the way to record this podcast was enough to demonstrate the respect and admiration Simon has earned from his staff, students and wider school community. Simon is a walking example of a man who has an educational vision, and the charisma and drive to allow it to materialise.

Podcast Episode THREE – Sean Hiller

I invited my best friend Sean Hiller to come in and chat about his experience in education so far. Sean and I met on our first day of university and have been buddies ever since. Sean teaches at a zoned government school in Victoria and is also the head of year twelve. Sean is particularly clued up on all things technology and has some interesting insights into how it can be used better in the classroom.

This episode covers topics including technology, generational change and culture in the classroom and we also dip our toes into the differences of government and private schooling.
