As a child I grew up in a very social community, surrounded by children both younger and older. Adults in my local area became part of my support group in a way that helped me to understand the differing values and skills that a ‘village’ of adults can bring to a child. As a result of growing up in this setting I knew from a young age that I wanted to be part of an Early Childhood Education and Care community. I have a strong passion for guiding and scaffolding the lives of our next generation, whilst working on and building secure relationships with families. I love being apart of and watching children blossom. I enjoy using my teaching practices and pedagogy to walk alongside them during their transitions between spaces, people and different skills.
