I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to all members of the Hume Anglican Grammar community, and in particular, those families who will join me as foundation members of our Kalkallo Campus in 2022. I am excited to begin this learning journey with you and your students.
I am a highly experienced educator, having taught and led extensively in the independent sector. I am passionate about teaching and learning and all students having success. I believe that students need to feel at home in their learning environment, comfortable to take risks and to feel a valuable member of a learning community. I believe that the learning environment needs to provide varied and unique challenges for every child so that they will aspire to be their best. Student’s individual talents, abilities, skills and wellbeing need to be nurtured so that all students can reach their potential.
I have two children – Jordan (23 years) and Charlotte (20 years) and so I understand the home school partnership that is necessary for a successful school experience. I am married and have two alpacas, two sheep, four chooks and a chihuahua. I am looking forward to getting to know you, your child and your family.
You play a strong role in your child’s learning, development and wellbeing. I believe in building a solid family-school partnership whereby the needs of our students are at the centre. Home and school need to be connected so that the knowledge, skills and expertise of the whole community is used to expand learning.
I am looking forward to the 2022 school year full of rich, authentic learning as we work together in the education of our children.
