About the Author.
My name is Bob Brandis.
My history is below but in a nutshell,
? I have been with Education Qld for 38 years,
? a teacher for 35;
? of which 32 were as a principal.
? I am now a relief teacher because I enjoy it.
I want to share my experience and improve your relief teaching skills.
I started with Education Queensland in 1973. I spent a few years teaching primary
classes in Brisbane before taking over my first principal position at my one teacher
school in 1979.
I progressed through the principal ranks taking on bigger and bigger schools until I
earned principalship of my big city school in Gladstone.
Throughout my career I kept close to my classrooms and teachers.
After 38 years with Education Queensland - 32 years as principal, I retired from full
time work in 2010. During that time I taught in every classroom from Prep through
to Year 12.
