"The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher
explains.The superior teacher demonstrates.
The great teacher inspires."
- William Ward

Welcome to the professional e-portfolio of Melanie Carrigan. The purpose of this site is to give a clear and detailed description of my personal philosophy, practices and goals that relate to the field of PDHPE teaching.
About me:
I live on a farm close to the small country town of Scone with my parents and three brothers.
I attended St Vincent's Collage, an all-girls boarding school in Sydney, where I completed the Higher School Certificate.
From here I applied to Charles Sturt University for a place in the course Bachelor of Human Movement/Teaching and when accepted, moved on campus at Bathurst where I am currently a full-time student, enjoying my course thoroughly.
