My name is Mark MacLean. I’m a writer and editor and blogger and, as of right now, a History / English teacher at Lightning Ridge Central School, New South Wales. I’m here for 2016: terms 2, 3 and 4.

This blog is my way of getting to know the place. I don’t know who’s married to who (or used to be), I don’t know the politics and I don’t know the wrong things to say. Cut me some slack. If you see me in the chocolate aisle at Khan’s don’t punch me out, just ping me an email and set me straight. It’ll be easier for all of us.
