Hot Rock Tutoring Mark Fedorniak
Mark has over 37 years of experience in the classroom. He has taught high school Maths for Brisbane School of Distance Education and was seconded to the Department of Educational Training and Employment as a project officer with the Information and Technology Branch later in his career. He has also worked in the building industry and with his business partner worked part and full time in the industry spending several months repairing buildings damaged in the Cloncurry floods of 1990. He has a certificate in Horticulture and a keen interest in agriculture.

Mark was the son of a farmer and with his 3 brothers worked and played hard on the farm overlooking the Kenilworth township. There were 3 other families of 4 boys each so many painful lessons of life were learned early resulting in Mark wearing a reasonable amount of plaster in his early days. He also learned that hard work and attention to problem solving were aspects of everyday life on the farm

After completing his course at North Brisbane College of advanced Education , Mark spent his first year teaching in Kenilworth. He was inspected there and was promoted to a one teacher school in McKinlay. The famous Walkabout Pub that was used in the film Crocodile Dundee was where the townsfolk met and it was here he became acquainted with local chararcters who would further shape his outlook on life. He was inspected and offered a further promotion as Principal of a Class 5 school but decided that teaching was what he wanted to do and from there accepted posting s to Enoggera State School, Wilston State School and Everton Park State School.

Mark introduced online teaching to the children of his mainstream class s through Blackboard and EdStudio. Homework and assignments were uploaded to blackboard and students of similar skills and levels were able to collaborate online in a confident and successful way, improving outcomes for students otherwise struggling in the classroom.

He went on to teach as a Middle Maths teacher for Brisbane School of Distance Education using a variety of programs including Blackboard and Collaborate and from there accepted a position with DETE as a project officer for the Information and Technology Branch where he worked on projects including the Bring Your Own Device initiative. His team were responsible for assisting schools with decision making processes regarding the introduction of 21st century technologies into Queensland classrooms.
