Having taught in the South East for over 25 years, with a focus more recently on leadership, I have the honour of leading Mary MacKillop Memorial School. I am a community minded person, who has a passion for teaching where the child is seen as competent and capable and an active protagonist in the learning process. I am inspired and motivated by St Mary of the Cross MacKillop and the life and good work that she undertook and endeavour to share this inspiration with our children, families and staff.

School Counsellor 

At Mary MacKillop Memorial School, we are passionate about your child's wellbeing.  Students sometimes need someone just to come alongside them and support them emotionally.  My role as the school counsellor allows me the privilege of being a helping hand or listening ear to any child.  I hope to create an atmosphere in counselling where students feel safe to chat about worries and free to be honest about anything that they might find confusing or unsettling.  I am passionate about enabling students to thrive in their own unique way as they progress through their junior years.

In my role as a Year 4 teacher, I will strive for excellence and promote the learning of all students in various and creative ways.

I am currently working as an ESO at Mary Mackillop Memorial School for the second year in a row. As a university student pursuing a degree in Primary Education, my experience in the field of education has been instrumental in developing my skills. I take great pride in being part of the Mary Mackillop community, and every day is a fulfilling experience for me. As an ESO, I get the opportunity to connect with students on a personal level, both inside and outside the classroom, and provide them with valuable support. I also enjoy collaborating with the teaching team, learning from them, and consistently improving myself as an aspiring educator. My goal is to bring fresh perspectives and a passion for learning that aligns with the school's nurturing ethos. I firmly believe in the transformative power of education and am committed to creating an environment where every student feels encouraged to explore and reach their full potential.
