Being a teacher has given me the opportunity to participate in the Sacramental journeys of Reconciliation, First Holy Communion and Confirmation. I have been a classroom teacher, Librarian, Visual Arts teacher, Science teacher, Religious Education Leader and Learning and Teaching Leader.
In these roles I have taught students from Prep to Year 8 in Melbourne and Sydney. On school camps I have travelled to Canberra, Adelaide, Mansfield, Anglesea, Malmsbury, Bendigo, Melbourne City, Swan Hill, Safety Beach Dromana, Barwon Heads … I’m wishing for a school camp to Paris! I have coached Year 7 and Year 5 & 6 soccer teams and ‘nearly’ learnt the offside rule. At St Gabriel’s I introduced House Debating and the Public Speaking Competition.
But most of all I have met a star studded cast of students and families. I couldn’t imagine my life without them.
