Career Profile
A desire to empower children and provide them with cooperative and engaging learning experiences
led me to completing an education degree. Innovative and collaborative learning experiences which
create excitement and a desire to learn are aspects of my teaching and learning strategies I implement
in the classroom. Promoting students to think for themselves, and embrace their individualism is
derived by my positive supportive learning environment. I am passionate about creating a strong
community in the school by utilising technology to connect with parents, carers and community
members.
