I am a passionate Kindergarten teacher for the NSW Department of Education. I have taught little ones for 29 years in schools across various parts of Sydney and 6 of those years in London at Malorees Infants School in Kilburn.
I currently work at Wahroonga Public School in Northern Sydney. Over the past few years I have been part of the regional professional learning team supporting schools and teachers with the K-4 initiative Best Start . I was a Literacy and Numeracy Leader and a Targeting Early Numeracy (TEN) Facilitator for Northern Sydney. More recently I was in State Office as the K-2 Target Programs Advisor with responsibilities state wide for TEN and Gifted and Talented Kindergarten (GTK).
I am once again back at Wahroonga PS 3 days and a Language , Learning and Literacy (L3) Trainer 2 days a week.
I have always been passionate about developing strong relationships with our local prior to school facilities to ensure the best transition to our school for both students and parents.
I was very fortunate to be awarded a NSW Premiers Teacher Scholarship.
I received the 2015 Premier’s Early Childhood Education Council Early Childhood Scholarship.
I will shortly be headed to the United States for the month of April to visit and learn from exemplary educators, early childhood centres and schools. I will be traveling from Sydney to Denver CO, Houston TX, Seattle WA, San Francisco CA and Boston MA. I am fortunate to be attending the large NCTM (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics) conference in San Francisco.
Please follow along my journey – which I hope to be inspiring and lots of fun.
