Why are you passionate about girls education?
To me, girls’ education is about empowering young girls to reach their potential. I am passionate about creating lifelong confidence in our students that continues long after they have left The Glennie School.
What sets Glennie apart from the other schools?
When you set foot in The Glennie School you will quickly realise that it is our girls that set us apart from other schools. Glennie girls are taught to be assertive, yet kind. Glennie girls and staff are committed to growth and excellence in their pursuits, however, their awareness of the people around them and their humbleness in success is often noted.
What is something others may not know about you?
I grew up on a cattle property in New South Wales and as a student, I also attended an Anglican girls' school as a boarder. I enjoy spending my weekends watching my children play Saturday sport, swimming and frequently catching shows at the local Empire Theatre and QPAC.
What excites you about teaching?
In Performing Arts, I enjoy seeing the girls' confidence grow as they perform. My favourite moments are always walking off the performance stage with the girls and seeing the pride they are feeling after their performance. In that moment the dedication, hard work and disciplined approach to their performance work is celebrated in the confidence they feel. When this happens the girls feel like they can take on the world and it is no longer about the Performing Arts - it's about personal growth and lifelong confidence they are working towards.
What do you think the future of teaching looks like?
The technology that is available to the girls and staff enables us to create outstanding access to further subject depth. Performing Arts benefits immensely from these developments and the future will continue this pattern of subject growth stemming from these opportunities.
