About Me


Secondary English teacher at Parramatta Marist High in Sydney, Australia. I am an early career teacher and a strong advocate for the Project Based Learning model. I am passionate about giving my students the best education and experience of school through establishing rapport, designing authentic and meaningful projects, moving away from direct instruction and toward student centred learning while embracing technology as a learning tool in the classroom. I hope to inspire and nurture a lifelong love of learning in my students with a particular focus on the power of the English language.

I think it is essential as a teacher to never become complacent or stagnant in our practice- education in the 21st century is continually developing and I am keen to grow and transform with it.
