Why are you involved with Montessori education?
I have extensive experience working in primary schools across the UK, and have always championed continuous provision, inclusion, focussing on individual learning experiences, and inciting independence. After moving back to Australia in 2021 and learning about MIC, I realised my teaching philosophy aligns with the Montessori experience. I’ve enjoyed learning more about this, and am looking forward to continuing this journey. I went to an international school myself, and I enjoy the diversity this brings. It’s great to be back in an environment so similar to the one I experienced.
What year did you commence at MIC?
How would you describe what you do?
My role is to facilitate learning in a way that excites and inspires. By reacting and planning with the interests of the children in mind, I hope they will find their learning fun, challenging, and motivating. I firmly believe all children can learn if they have the right mindset, and I try and instil this in any classroom I am in.
What’s your favourite thing about your role?
I love that I am always learning, both from the amazing community I work with and from the children. I am continually inspired by how honest, open and curious children are. It is so wonderful to witness the moment a child masters a new concept, activity or social interaction.Back to our People
