Through my work at Bold Park Community School, I have developed a belief in and passion for teaching through a Social Constructivism lens, relation and exposure to nature and outdoor activities (nature-play), the importance of community and teaching to the whole child.

Inside the classroom, I believe in developing higher order thinking skills, through problem-solving activities, it is my belief that if we give students the tools and strategies to tackle the unknown they will be prepared for the challenges that they will face in our ever-changing world. I believe Mathematics can be interesting and exciting and that if we engage students with content, they can see the purpose and engage deeply. I’m also passionate about English, its links to all subjects and the importance of creating strong literate readers and writers.

Outside of the classroom I enjoy being by the ocean (in or around it), swimming, surfing, I have taken up rock climbing and enjoy the challenge of trying new activities. When I am not being active I enjoy relaxing through yoga, reading a good book or watching movies/shows that interest me.


“Stand aside for a while and leave room for learning, observe carefully what children do, and then, if you have understood well, perhaps teaching will be different from before.

Creativity becomes more visible when adults try to be more attentive to the cognitive processes of children than to the results they achieve in various fields of doing and understanding.”
