Biography

I began my teaching career in 1999 and, since this time, I have been lucky enough to work in a range of schools and contexts, including a grammar school in Townsville, two comprehensive secondary colleges in Cambridgeshire in the United Kingdom, and a girls’ school in Brisbane.

Over the years, I have taught students aged 11 – 18. My subject areas include English, Literature, Humanities, Media, and Film and Television.  I also enjoy taking regular short courses in a range of areas, including floristry, ceramics, and beekeeping.

Why are you involved with Montessori education?

The Montessori method resonates with me due to its genuine child-centered and holistic approach to education. I am really looking forward to working with MIC’s senior students within the inspiring Montessori framework, with a view to assisting them to achieve their academic and personal goals.

What year did you commence at MIC?

2019

How would you describe what you do?

In a nutshell, I provide a supportive, organised and dynamic classroom environment to enable students to reach their educational goals. I enjoy integrating technology in a meaningful way into most of my lessons and believe in the power of collaboration to enhance learning outcomes. It is my goal to be approachable and friendly, while also offering structured learning experiences.

What’s your favourite thing about your role?

I love the creativity and flexibility that is offered by a Montessori school. I also believe that positive and friendly teacher-student relationships are essential for learning, so I genuinely enjoy getting to know the students in my care. I am always amazed by my students’ many gifts and talents, and I feel that it is a privilege to work with them every day.
