General Information

I have been a parent at Marian for many years but joined the Marian Staff in 2016 as a learning assistant. I really enjoy working alongside students and teachers.
In 2018, I moved into a new role as a Pastoral care assistant, which involves working with our international students. This is a role I love. Interacting with children and learning all about their cultures while at the same time teaching them about ours is a wonderful experience. Most importantly, I enjoy making all of our families feel welcome.

I really love to help students in their learning, working alongside them giving them the confidence they need in their learning. Being at Marian Catholic School is very rewarding. All the staff are very hardworking, and the student's wellbeing and learning is a priority.

When I am not at school, I enjoy reading, and I love walking and spending time with my family and friends.

General Information

I began working at Marian Catholic School in 2011 after completing a Certificate in Teacher Aiding.

During my time here, I have worked with students of various ages, assisting them both individually and in groups within the classroom setting.

I am passionate about children's learning and have been involved in delivering a small group literacy programme supporting students with their reading, writing and spelling.

When I am not working, I enjoy arts and crafts and spending time with family and friends.

I have had a long association with Marian as our three children have all attended.

Role

Learning Assistant & Sports Coordinator

General Information

I am from Colombia! I began working at Marian School in January 2010 as a volunteer helping a former Colombian refugee settle down at school, and I loved it!

I left in September 2011 when my twins were born, and I returned in 2015 after working at St Joseph’s Catholic School and Fairfield High School.

I enjoy working with children from diverse backgrounds, supporting them to gain confidence in their learning and speaking a new language. I also encourage them to keep and share their cultural values and traditions.

My passion and interests include teaching Spanish and organising cultural events for the community. I have also managed hockey and futsal teams.

In 2022, I started as a school coordinator. For me, this will involve encouraging children to keep active and open-minded to new opportunities in life to grow physically and mentally.

I am married to Nelson and have three children. Outside work, we enjoy watching movies, biking, playing hockey or having a party (sharing our traditions) with our Latin American friends.
