My professional experience spans nearly 30 years teaching in Primary schools in QLD and NSW. I have taught all ages in the Primary setting and always commit to building healthy relationships based on respect, trust and open communication.
With a special interest in literacy, I have vast experience in small group intervention, tutoring, whole class and year group teaching. I have adopted evidence-based approaches into classroom practice to promote success in reading, writing, and spelling. This instruction paired with explicit teaching in developing oral language, vocabulary and background knowledge has improved student outcomes.
Working in the early years has afforded me the opportunity to consult and work in partnership with allied health professionals and I am committed to the ongoing support and care clients require to achieve their goals.
In my leisure time, I enjoy traveling with my family, spending time at the beach and in the garden.
