Inside Teaching : June 2010
www.atra.edu.au | firstname.lastname@example.org 10 THINGS I'VE LEARNED... 23 of learning and a passion to learn more. A good teacher gives his or her all to the teaching. It's the quality of who the teacher is and of his or her teaching and the relationship the teacher has with the individual child that is the single most important factor in effective learning and student achievement. ■ Frances Underwood is the wife of the Governor of Tasmania, His Excellency, the Honourable Peter Underwood AC. She was head of the Friends' Junior School, Hobart, for 15 years. She is a registered teacher who is proud of her teacher registration and continues to teach. She is a trained International Baccalaureate Primary Years leader, holds a Certificate in Music and Dance Education from the Universitat Mozarteum, Salzburg, and is a member of the Australian College of Educators. Frances Underwood pictured at Government House, Hobart, enjoying tea and bikkies with students from Glenorchy Primary School, says her experience in education has prepared her well for what she calls the 'curious' role of 'Wife of the Governor,' a role that has no job description but many unarticulated community expectations. She and the Governor frequently host student groups and involve them in discussion and role play about democracy, party politics, the parliament and, more recently, hung parliaments.
