"My background before teaching was in Science. I worked for a number of years in research and development. It was after I had my first child that I realised how much I enjoyed teaching. Since then, I’ve worked in a number of schools, both in full time and casual positions.
Being the Prep teacher at Carlton Primary is very rewarding. The children display such a love for learning and show great persistence and resilience when trying something new. If you were to visit our prep classroom, I am sure you would see a warm, vibrant, inviting and engaged class. I enjoy working here because the staff and the parents work well together and support each other to create the best learning environment."
