Working in an American school - did I step through an interdimensional rift or just onto a plane 5 mths ago ??

The assistant principal at work is quite interested to gain my perspective on the differences that I have noticed between Aussie schools and my new American school. So he asked me to do a 1 page reflection as part of my end of year performance review, detailing some of the things I have noticed. In order to do that I did this mind map as a planning page, I thought some other people might be interested so here it is:

I guess upon reflection I can say I am not really surprised that I was a little bamboozled on my first day in this job!

BTW if you click on the image you can see a larger view, so it is easier to read.


  1. I LOVE the idea of entering all the differences into a mind map! Very cool and fun to read. Can I pinch your idea to lay out my take on the differences between Canada and Qatar? Full credits will come back to you.

    1. I am more than happy for you to pinch my idea Handinthesand:) I look forward to reading more of your wonderful blog.

  2. I copied your idea shamelessly Marianne, but I did reference you! What a fun exercise (though I have to admit I lost an entire morning doing it!).
