I have been teaching in a Kindergarten for the past 7 years and hope to continue my career with this age group. I have worked for 3 out of those 7 years in Perth and Melbourne and 4 years in a remote community in the Kimberley, WA.
I endeavor to create a balance between explicit, direct instruction as well as rich play based - student directed learning. This is my teaching goal and I strive towards creating this culture within each class I work.
I was awarded the University of Notre Dame Australia Youth Leadership award for the voluntary work I have done with children from disadvantaged backgrounds.
I graduated from University in 2011 and was fortunate enough to be offered a full-time position in a remote community. From there, I continued to learn and grow as a teacher and find out what makes me motivated to come to work each day.
I hope to create resources which will support the development of foundational Literacy, Numeracy and Wellbeing concepts specifically for students in their first few years of full-time schooling.
