Why are you passionate about girls education?
Girls education is unique and The Glennie School provides an engaging curriculum which allows every girl the opportunity and support to thrive. Girls education targets girls, nurturing and encouraging them to succeed in a learning environment designed specifically for their learning needs without the distraction of boys.

What sets Glennie apart from the other schools?
The spectacular grounds, enthusiastic, caring and experienced staff and most importantly the girls and their families. Every girl at Glennie works hard to be the best person she possibly can be.

What is something others may not know about you?
I have a 100-year-old Nanna living in Toowoomba and I am married with two lovely children.

What excites you about teaching?
As a teacher, I feel excited about the growth academically, socially, spiritually and culturally of each individual girl. Teaching is so rewarding as you get to play an integral part in the lives of students providing them with knowledge and experiences. It celebrates the differences that affect needs, abilities, motivations, interests and aspirations.

What do you think the future of teaching looks like?
Teaching will continue to have curriculum changes with further development in technology. Teaching will instil the idea that anything that is not possible now will be possible in the future.

What are your professional achievements and roles?
Head of Learning Support
