What other people have to say about membership

From a Teacher

‘Over the years I’ve been a member, I have learned so much and value so highly the books about (classroom) research. I love having the extended narrative from Australian settings and the expertise shared. I trust the ‘storytellers’ and I love the work you do to tell our stories.’

From a Principal

‘I have been a member since 1980, still teaching full time. PETAA provides that necessary life enriching transfusion that my teaching needs!’

From a Senior Lecturer

‘I appreciate and value PETAA's efficiency, its willingness to customise needs (wherever possible and reasonable), the up-to-date relevance to what is happening in classrooms, and increasingly, the connections that are being offered to ITE providers to engage pre-service and new graduate teachers.’
