Sydney Tour Karen Tyrrell Author


Karen Tyrrell Author tours Sydney with books to empower kids to live strong.

Pinch me! I can’t believe it. I’m speaking at a Teacher’s Conference. … I’m story telling at a library AND I’m book signing at a Dymocks book shop… all in Sydney.

WOW! How did this Sydney Tour happen?

A Teacher’s Conference invited me to be a key note speaker on coping skills for teachers. They wanted me to share my recovery story from parent-teacher bullying and mental illness to empower teachers to prevent burnout.

Principal Anthony Pitt (conference co-ordinator) requested I share wellness tools from my award winning resilience books Me and Her: A Memoir of Madness and Me and Her: A Guide to Recovery.

I can’t wait to “teach” the teachers practical life skills and self-care in workshop groups.

I’m traveling from Brisbane to Sydney with my husband Steve in a car loaded with banners, books … and HOPE.

 Why does this Sydney Tour mean so much to me?

I was born in the City of Sydney. I moved from Ultimo to Mt Pritchard when I was five. I attended Mt Pritchard East Public School and Liverpool Girls High as Karen Cox, maths and science geek.  Steve Tyrrell and I married on a boat on Sydney Harbour. Later we bought a house in St Johns Park where we raised our young family. I taught at Fairfield West School full time and later at surrounding schools as a relief teacher.  My dad and sister live there still.

Love to connect with family and friends in Sydney 🙂

    Hi Karen,
    I was in your K2 class and my sister has shared your link to me. I am in the front row with the white bows in my hair.
    Congratulations on your success and I am happy to see that all is well. I would love to see you again and I will come to see you at Penrith, as I work full-time.

  • Hi Silvana,
    Lovely to hear from you. I DO remember you. You were quietly spoken and very sweet.
    Look forward to meeting you at Penrith Dymocks on 18th July 11.30-1.30.

    Karen 🙂
