I am looking forward to continuing to work with staff and students at HeadStart from around the world with such a diverse range of cultures. My passion lies in drama and the performing arts, so I am extremely excited to be bringing drama into the curriculum at HeadStart. In Australia, I studied a Bachelor of Contemporary Theatre. I then completed my PGCE in Secondary English and Drama. This is now my tenth year teaching and in this time I have been Drama Co-ordinator and Literacy Leader in the Creative Arts. I enjoy writing plays and directing as well as acting as a dramaturg. Some of my highlights throughout my career have been working as an Assistant Director for Queensland Theatre Company; working as a dramaturg for Playwriting Australia’s National Script Workshop, being a guest director for Queensland University of Technology and having my own plays performed in venue’s throughout Queensland, Australia. Over my time teaching, I have developed an interest in student well-being. Last year, I completed a Master’s in Education in School Guidance Counselling and worked over the summer in an Australian school as a school Guidance Officer and Counsellor. Within the classroom, I aim to provide each child with a safe and supportive environment where they can feel comfortable to be themselves and develop social independence and collaboration. I encourage building resilience, courage and curiosity in learning whilst engaging students in a sympathetic, genuine and understanding manner. Outside of school, I enjoy scuba diving and tennis. I am a huge foodie and love to go to the different restaurants around Phuket and duck away for the weekend to Bangkok, Singapore or any other country close by for a dose of theatre, comedy, live music and culinary experiences. I hope to eat my way around the world.
