Dr Val Faulkner retires

Thursday, 3 March 2016

Tell us about your career in Education and when you began your work with UWA.
I spent 1974 to 1998 teaching in schools in Western Australia.  I worked in both country and city schools, including schools of great challenge.  I taught all year levels with my final years at Winthrop Primary School.  I have worked in five universities since moving away from school teaching – Murdoch, University of Canberra, Australian Catholic University, Edith Cowan and UWA. I began at UWA in August 2009; the second semester of the Master of Teaching (Primary).
