I started teaching in 2005 - seems so long ago now! Two years of that was spent teaching in California and Washington, the rest of the time in Australia! I love teaching primary age children, knowing that I am influencing future generations. I am passionate about teaching and everything I create is current, purposeful and engaging for children.
Teaching children through inquiry is what I believe to be the best way! I have always loved Maths and Science but now and definitely getting my head around the best ways to teach Reading and Writing to all age groups.
In my first year of teaching, I was nominated for Victorian Graduate Teacher of the Year.
Attended Primary and Secondary education in the country town I grew up in, with both parents being teachers at the High School I attended. In 2004 I completed a Bachelor of Science/Bachelor of Primary Education at Deakin University.
