Personal Professional Qualities
I am highly organised, self-motivated and hardworking.
I feel strongly that we need to work hard to establish educationally powerful connections and relationships.
I am a great team member, who can listen well to others and offer ideas. I also have the ability to lead when it is appropriate to do so.
I am constantly inquiring about my teaching practice and how I can improve what I am doing to better meet the needs of my students.
I am a focused and quick learner, who thrives on being challenged and enjoys working with others.
I have established excellent professional relationships with colleagues at all of the schools I have taught in, worked with and also while on professional development.
I love being a teacher and am motivated to get the best results possible for my students.
I love working with children. The most satisfying part of teaching for me is when the children are fully engaged in the learning tasks and are experiencing that learning can be challenging and fun! I am excited about the career that is unfolding for me in teaching and cannot wait for my next teaching experience. I am passionate about digital technology and the various paths that this opens up for our learners. Recently I have become very passionate about F45. I enjoy the challenge of setting physical goals that seem mentally impossible and challenging myself to meet them.
My interests are: Life-long Education, Technology, Digital Design, Dance, Drama, Reading, Visual Arts, Fitness, Go-Karting, Travelling and Dogs.
