Updating Profile


When I finished my University Degree, I did a little bit of traveling with my now husband, before finding a teaching job at a local primary school. I worked there for three years as a classroom teacher, literacy intervention and sports coordinator, before moving to Ashby in 2008. During this time, I have had two children of my own, working part time for 6 years before returning to full time teaching. I have had many roles in my time at Ashby and am thrilled to now be the Assistant Principal. My favourite thing about Ashby is the community feel. Everyone is so welcoming and inclusive, it is an amazing community to be a part of.
