Areas of interest
I have spent my entire teaching career in rural or regional areas and in schools with low socio-economic communities. I am keen to build the capacity of staff to take on leadership roles. I am interested in STEM in schools and believe that all students are capable of improvement given the opportunity.
Sports – both playing and watching
Enjoy reading and cooking
Family time is the greatest enjoyment for me.
