What inspired you to become a teacher?

I knew from an early age that I wanted to be a teacher and it was a natural fit. I love working with students and getting the best out of them. Every day of teaching brings something different and the impact you can have on many people’s lives is rewarding and something other people don’t get to do.

What makes Wesley a great place to work?

As staff we all talk about the community feel that Wesley has. This really resonates with me as I grew up in the country and I hold the belief that it ‘takes a village to raise a child.’

Wesley has a holistic approach to education, which is important in developing adolescents. Katitjin is a prime example of this in the Middle School and is such a unique and powerful program. I love that our students take on the many different opportunities that are provided to them and Middle School is a good chance to try these out before Senior School.

Our students are polite, respectful and engage in discussions as you walk around the campus. The staff are a pleasure to work with and support each other, which is important and makes working in the Middle School a delight.

Outside the College, what are your favourite things to do?

I enjoy playing and watching sport. I’m a West Coast Eagles fan and I still manage to play netball with a close group of friends. I also enjoy catching up with friends, going to the beach, travelling and some gardening.
