I am currently holding an expert support position for years prep to 6, after just coming out of four years as the coordinator of the prep/K learning unit. I hold many leadership roles within the school and have been involved in review panels, policy writing and the mentoring of graduate and student teachers. For many years I have worked in an open-plan teaching environment, in team teaching situations. I have successfully undertaken a wide variety of roles, have lead many committees, organised events and curriculum related activities. I have worked in the significantly high ESL area of Dandenong for the past 6 years, resulting in a strong understanding of the multi-cultural and ESL needs of children from other cultural backgrounds.
