I have lived in the Illawarra my whole life and have raised my 3 children here with my husband and menagerie of animals. I started study in my later years after being a stay at home mum for 16 years. I started out studying my Bachelor of Primary Education for 3 years before deciding to change to a Bachelor of Early Childhood Education as I knew that the first 5 years of a child's life are the most important for learning and development and felt that is where I could have the most impact as a teacher. I am currently at the end of my 2nd year of my Bachelor of Early Childhood Education Degree and I feel extremely privileged to be working at The Secret Garden Preschool Unanderra as a CERT 3 Educator. My goal as a teacher is to make a difference in Early Childhood Education, and to provide the children and families within our centre quality education and care. "Every Child Deserves at Least One Adult Who Is Irrationally Crazy about Him or Her"- Urie Bronfrenbrenner.
I've lived with my family in the Illawarra my whole life, always being surrounded by children and always having the ambition to be a teacher. I completed my HSC in 2017, then I started studying my Bachelor of Arts in 2018 in hoping to become a high school history teacher before changing in to doing my Cert 3 in Childhood Education during 2019. I believe that the first five years of a child's life are their foundation for their future. Every child deserves equal opportunities and the chance to build upon their strengths in an educational setting. As an educator I will dedicate myself to both my centre and families, always hoping for the best in the children and helping them achieve their goals.
