My Experience

I am a passionate educator who is committed to empowering teachers, school leaders and communities to provide quality driven teaching and learning with a focus on Culturally Inclusive Practices and High Expectations for all. This enables every student to participate in rich authentic learning and achieve their full potential.

My strong inter-relational skills, matched with my expert knowledge in Mathematics, Assessment or Learning, developing Local Curriculum and Culturally Inclusive Practices enable me to work collaboratively to advance systems and teacher practice.

In all my PLD, this has had the greatest impact and shift in my practice. Your workshops and explanations are so clear and having you model and co-teach with me brings it all to life. Your feedback helps me significantly with my own professional learning. I now have higher expectations of all of my students and my data is evidence of the accelerated progress they have made. - Teacher
