What’s my story as an educator?
I am a primary teacher, school principal and educator who strives to be the very best that I can be... authentic, appreciative, positive and enthusiastic. To inspire the lives of others with faith, hope and love, and to bring out the best in all people, especially the staff and children at my school. I work hard to create a caring, vibrant and creative school so that students are set up for success, academically and as healthy, happy, flourishing kids, now and in the future.
I’m passionate about the environment and my community (locally and globally) and respecting all people, that as we live, work and learn together, we find our place and purpose, making the world a happier, fairer and better place for all.
My professional interests include educational leadership, understanding and growing healthy school culture, the alignment of the architecture and design of schools, classrooms and learning spaces with pedagogy, future schools thinking, educating kids in poverty, disability and environmental education…just a few things!
My spare time is a filled with a combination of serving at church, time with my family, gardening, gym, friends and working hard to set up schools (small classes really) and community development in Kotdwara, a small town in North India. I visit Kotdwara once a year and am also blessed to also have the opportunity to help train and mentor teachers in Mumbai at www.visionrescue.co.in -these guys do an amazing job.
