I believe my role as an educator is to
guide and nurture the next generation to establish skills to achieve health,
knowledge, respect, and prosperity.
I am passionate about
students being empowered to succeed. As a Principal, I use all tools available
to inspire staff and students to work together to promote student achievement
and well-being. I am an avid supporter of effective and innovative
professional development that encourages teachers to be reflective and to
continuously examine our practice to provide quality teaching and learning for
I believe that having quality,
inspirational and passionate teachers is essential to a school's success. To
borrow John Hattie's words; "teachers should build classroom climates
where errors are welcome, student engagement is the norm, questioning is high
and students gain reputations as effective learners."
I enjoy celebrating successes and
acknowledge hard work of staff, students and community and believe this is one
of the contributors fundamental to a happy school environment. All staff,
students and community should feel valued and appreciated at school.
