TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a teacher on the south coast of NSW, Australia. Most of my teaching career has been teaching K-2 and I love it. I am a trained Reading Recovery teacher and have a special interest in early literacy. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing a child's eyes light up when they realise they can read!
