Lauren Cook

Lauren Cook can’t remember a time when she didn’t want to teach. From the beginning of her career in 2001, she strove to understand what was at the basis of good teaching and learning.

Lauren spent many of her early years of teaching in brand new schools, where the exploration of best practice was at the forefront. Lauren undertook a variety of leadership roles from curriculum to professional learning to student management. She also joined the Faculty of Education at Deakin University to work with pre-service teachers.

In 2010, Lauren became an Assistant Principal, but missed her role in the classroom. She now wants to focus more on teaching and learning, and contributing to developing professional networks of teachers committed to best practice.

Some really great ideas in this course, particularly the activity suggestions on how to integrate literacy strategies. This was a good refresher.

I found this course to be very relevant to my teaching. Some of the practices I use in my room were reinforced whilst I learnt some other ideas that I can use.

This has been very helpful as it has given me many ideas and allowed me to come up with my own on being proactive in engaging students in reading.

It had many pertinent examples and strategies and ideas to help deal with specific situations. It was based on researched material. I like the emphasis on teacher care and teacher management as teachers can exacerbate behaviour and reactions in students.

I loved everything that we learnt about.  It has built up my passion for writing and helped me to develop a practical writing program.
