Teaching Practice: A Guide for Early Childhood Students

By Rosemary Perry | Go to book overview

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

As in most projects such as this there are many people to thank. To those who commented on the early drafts—Sue Armstrong, Margaret Henry, Deborah Gahan and Amos Hatch I would like to say how much I appreciated their constructive criticism and supportive comments. I would also like to express my thanks to my friends and experienced practising teachers, Sue Thomas, Gay Burgess and Fay Haas, who keep me in touch with the realities of teaching young children and have provided some of the revealing anecdotes for this book. To the Queensland University of Technology, the Head of the School of Early Childhood—Professor Gerald Ashby—and to my research assistant Shanti Balda and the Centre of Applied Studies in Early Childhood, I am indebted for their practical support and encouragement, which has made the writing of this book possible. I would also like to thank Vivienne Harris and Margie Crombie for their assistance with the photography and to the centres in which the photographs were taken—the Lady Gowrie Child Centre, Northgate State preschool and primary school, and the Chapel Hill kindergarten.

Above all I wish to express my gratitude to the student teachers who have so willingly shared their stories and experiences of teaching practice and taught me so much about the process of becoming a teacher. Thank you - Bronwyn Aird, Samantha Lee Anderson, Kay Beattie, Kym Blank, Ben Campbell, Allan Davison, Melissa Deakin, Kerrylyn Doocey, Fiona Dunn, Lana Edmonds, Karen Ellis, Louise Ellrott, Danielle Frey, Susan Glass, Korina Gole, Jodie Holding, Kirsten Ivett, Lena Jensen, Lynette Kai, Luke Kelly, Cindy Keong, Fiona Langton, Tania Masci, Kylie Patterson, Sherrin Proctor, Rachell Rendall, Tammy Shaw, Tina Stannard, Melinda Taylor, Maria Thurlow, Suzanne Tomkins, Monica Treschman, Joanne Warren, Nicole Wickham, Tania Wilcox.
