Before joining CMS I was employed as an Enrolled Nurse in a variety of settings, including rehabilitation, aged care and hospitals, for approximately 18 years. It was at the insistence of one of my own children that I started my journey into education as a Teacher Assistant.
I chose to work with CMS because of the friendly atmosphere and the Montessori philosophy, which allows the children to follow their own path and provides a more holistic education. I started out as an assistant in the Foundation class before moving to Cycle 2, then Cycle 3, Learning Enhancement, and finally Cycle 1. I now have the role of HPE Teacher for Cycle 1 and 2D.
The things I most enjoy about my work are the children, who are always so eager to learn, share their views and challenge you with their lateral thinking as well as the beautiful bush setting which is very relaxing.
I am very passionate about maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle and love travelling and experiencing other cultures!
