My role this year is varied. I am a Reading Recovery teacher for six year old students who need a boost with their reading and writing. On Monday’s to Friday’s, I have the pleasure of working in each class to collaborate with class teachers and students with their Sustainability roles at school and at times in the wider community.

This year the Sustainability teaching team will also work with student leaders, known as the Green Geckos each week during lunchtimes. I am impressed by the passion the students, staff and parents have in Environmental education. I look forward to working with parents and utilising their strengths during working bees to improve our school as an inspiring authentic learning space.

I have a love of travel and seeing how other cultures experience the world, the great outdoors, skiing, gardening, singing and the arts which I share with my family.
