I am the Upper Primary Coordinator for Quintilian. I work primarily in the Library but also teach in Year 4.

I have been lucky enough to have taught at a variety of schools. While working in Spain, I worked at two different international Montessori schools.

I was the Numeracy Lead at the school and I wrote and oversaw the implementation of a new curriculum while I was there. I was also part of the wider implementation of the National Centre for Excellent Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM) mastery programme across the United Kingdom where I trained as a Professional Development lead.

I am passionate about maths education and development s in education as a whole.

I love watching sports, especially soccer and rugby but my playing days are over. In addition, I love spending time with my family- Perth is a great place to get out and go for an adventure with the children.
