I am Kate. I am a Teacher Librarian; it is double-barrelled because I have both a teaching degree and a Masters in Teacher Librarianship.

You can find me on Twitter as @katemreid.

I currently work at The Hutchins School, Hobart, but I have also worked in Hong Kong at the Australian International School Hong Kong, and began my TL career at Lockhart Central School (K-12) in NSW.

I am continuing this blog because I know that part of my personal learning style is needing to talk through new ideas and information as a means of getting my head around the concepts they present. In talking through – or blogging about – my evolving understanding, I make connections with previous experiences and prior knowledge that do not occur to me on the first reading (or viewing or listening – it’s all multiformat now!). Perhaps this blog will take a little of the pressure off the eardrums of my colleagues and my husband!

  • Hi Kate,

    I just stumbled upon your blog! It went something along the lines of – I’ve started blogging with my Health Studies class this year, I follow edublogs on Twitter and saw the post about Blackbird Pie, saw that Sue had got the idea from you so I clicked on your blog and started poking around 🙂 It’s an interconnected world, yet I also teach in an independent school in Hobart. Too funny! What does that suggest about Hobartians? That we have to much time to play on the internet?
    Anyway, I completely agree with the premise of your blog – a place to mull through ideas, try out stuff, meet like-minded people and learn new things.
    Keep up the great work!
    Cheers, Erica.
