As a mother and educator, I have a strong sense of equity and know that each child comes with their own set of interests, gifts, and challenges. I believe that as I teach each student, work with every colleague, and move throughout the workplace, actions of support, care, collaboration, empathy, understanding and equality should be afforded to all.
I am a secondary-trained specialist teacher with over 30 years’ experience working in primary and secondary school contexts at both general teaching and leadership levels. I have been employed in both the public and private sectors throughout Australia. My passion for providing a rigorous, contemporary, relevant and appropriately challenging curriculum is founded on a teaching pedagogy that makes authentic connections to the wider world. This has been fuelled by my interests and studies of Gifted Education, Visual Arts, Teaching and Museum Studies.
