About me

Cteachr is an educator who enjoys travelling so much that she decided to do a teaching exchange in Australia.  Why not combine work and pleasure?  You can read about my adventures here.  Go back in the archives to read about my year in Australia in greater detail.

I am also interested in Educational Technology and completed a Grad certificate at UBC in 2010.  That is where I was introduced to blogging.  I love being able to write and share my thoughts and experiences with others.  Through blogging, I’ve met some new people, in particular Cheri and her husband in Oregon, who were kind enough to invite me for a visit when I was passing through in summer 2012.  I also find it easier to keep my friends back home updated on my adventures and share my travel pictures by blogging.

Since my return from Australia, I’ve connected with other former exchange teachers through an organization called Canadian League for Educational Exchange (CLEE). We meet regularly and organize events for visiting exchangees.  I also publish a newsletter for them which you can read here.

Please drop by and comment on any of the posts.  I hope you’ll find something of interest and follow my adventures regularly. You can also follow me on Twitter @cteachr or @tmwupsidedown.

Thanks for reading!20121228_044846

    • Oh course! In Ontario, our contact is CEEF.CA. Have a look at that website for a lot of information and you can then contact them for further questions you might have. We have a great support group here in Ottawa and we were certainly supported while teaching and living in Australia with the local exchange group there. I hope you pursue your dream. And thanks for dropping by.


      • This is going in my bookmarks. Seems like a big plan. I would love to do that much travelling, but have other sort of plans. I want to settle in Australia, work and travel. Love technology so saving up for educational course. If I am on track with my budget and plans, will try getting around all those places.

        I am more determined now



  1. How exciting that you are going on another exchange in 2015! I’m looking forward to reading about your adventures and being an exchange teacher. Thanks so much for checking out and following Travel Oops! Cheers, Steph 🙂


    • Steph, I so enjoyed reading your blog. I plan to spend a few hours reading your adventures as well. We met a lovely exchange teacher from Colorado last year and then visited him this past summer when we drove through the US with our Roadtrek camper. Your story about being a Yank reminded me of him and his tribulations while working and living in Melbourne.
