I've worked in child care and education since 1993 in a variety of capacities. I've worked as a nanny, au pair, child care assistant, room leader, Educational Leader, Director and Nominated Supervisor ... I have also spent a few years being an Educational Leader mentor to 25 Educational Leaders! The publications that I am creating with my project partner, Sandi Phoenix, are aimed at supporting Educators within reflective practice, planning and documenting.
I'd call myself progressive and eclectic. I gather elements and weave them into my own philosophy.

I'm an Early Childhood Teacher and I operate Sticks & Stones Education on the side ... www.sticksandstoneseducation.com.au ... As a result of this small side business, I started working on a collaborative project with Sandi Phoenix from Phoenix Support for Educators. This then evolved into ESRE! Educator's Symposium & Resource Emporium - a market and conference event. This has then further evolved into ESRE Productions where we have created a series of amazing publications! A reflective journal called Personal Reflections of an Educator, a Planning Diary, and a wall Calendar. We are planning on creating a series of supports for these documents and we also plan on creating a number of free supports for educators working with children in education and care!
