General Information

I have been teaching at Marian Catholic School for almost 10 years and love the strong sense of faith, family and community here.

I am currently teaching a Year 5/6 class and, although I do have some experience teaching younger students, I particularly enjoy this age group.
A typical day in my classroom is super busy - lots going on and groups of students working on ten different things at once! I believe that a ‘modern learning environment’ is not just about the furniture - it’s about teaching skills and attitude, rather than facts, and providing my students with carefully scaffolded choices so that they engage in their learning and feel a real sense of ownership of their progress.

My interests include reading (especially anything on history, science or theology….), cooking, travelling and spending time with my family and pets.
