General Information

I have been in the education sector for a number of years. Most of my experience has been in the junior school.
I love teaching at CPS as it has so much to offer students. Children have wonderful learning opportunities both inside and outside the classroom.

Providing a place where children are motivated, actively engaged, and take responsibility for their actions and learning, will be a central classroom focus. I enjoy a bright, contemporary learning environment where students can take risks, feel challenged and celebrate their successes.
