I have loved being part of the Bungaree PS family for more than 19 years. I began teaching at Bungaree in the Upper school, before retraining in Early Childhood Education when my children were very young. Since then I have spent most of my time in Kindy, Pre Primary and now Year 1. There is something very special about watching our students go from young children to successful members of the Rockingham community. I aim to create a classroom environment that is warm and welcoming to both students and parents, where the children are encouraged to become the best they can be and where everyone feels important and respected. I believe each child is unique and offers something special to my class. I enjoy participating in regular Professional Learning opportunities that enable me to become a better teacher for my students and keep up with sound educational practice. I feel very privileged to be at the beginning of the children’s learning journey and I enjoy having them come back and share their successes with me, whether that be in Primary or High School or once they join the workforce.
