Junior Preparatory School Staff
I moved into my current role as Head of the Junior Preparatory at Broadacres Academy in January 2018 after many happy years spent in the classroom.
My career in education spans twenty-five years and has been incredibly fulfilling and diverse.
I started teaching in High School, moved down to Senior Prep, then into the Pre-Primary and Grade 0.
My approach to learning involves creating a positive, happy, fun and secure space where learning is integrated, hands-on and differentiated.
Over the years I have come to firmly believe that teachers should expect remarkable things from the children in their care. If you believe they can, they will.
