Personal message: As an Educational Leader I aspire to make a positive difference not only in my own classroom, but also throughout the whole school community.
It is my passion to create rich, rigorous and challenging learning experiences that guide my students to become creative, responsible and autonomous learners. As a visual learner myself, I aim to create a classroom space in which learning is visible and students are independently building strategies to assist them in transferring their learning from surface to deep.
I enjoy working collaboratively and sharing ideas or new insights with others in order to support and extend all students within the school, all while continuing to improve my own professional practice.
Having a very special role as an educator within Catholic Education also inspires me to guide my students to reach out and spread the good news about life and its purpose.
