Dianne O’Dwyer
TLN Presenter & Host
I have taught in kindergartens and long day care centres for 38 years. I worked in Melbourne for most of my career and moved to the Surfcoast 5 years ago. I am now working in a kindergarten in Geelong and also do casual relief teaching. I am particularly interested in sustainability and fostering creativity through arts practice. I am a long term activist with the Australian Education Union and fighting for the early childhood sector of education has been a strong thread throughout my career. I enjoy mentoring teachers and passing on what I have learned.
