Let me tell you a bit about myself, my passions and dreams.
I have 3 beautiful children who are all in High School and a Husband and life partner that I absolutely adore! My children are in Years, 7, 8 and VCE. It feels like only yesterday that they were navigating their way through Primary School but now my eldest is turning 17 this year, (the same age I met my husband)! My girls begin every day with a good morning hug with me and my youngest still enjoys a cuddle with his Mum, even though he is taller than me. I hope it stays like that for a long time. We live across from a forest complete with a creek, kangaroos and wombats and we often go walking through there, particularly after the creek has been in flood. We love camping and the beach and absolutely spoil our Cavalier King Charles dog.
Another of my passions and the subject I teach, is Music. I love sharing my love of music with my students and my family, working alongside them and watching them as they grow into successful, confident, competent musicians. (My children all play an instrument and sing and my husband is a guitarist. My principle instrument is the flute, so music is such an important part of our lives). Being a teacher is so much more than parroting curriculum. Students of music learn so much more than crotchets, turnaround chord progressions and singing in harmony. They learn life skills, such as commitment to a project, working within a team and overcoming obstacles like nerves, road blocks and problem solving. Our Biennial Musical Productions are second to none, if I do say so myself! Last Year we performed Rogers’ and Hammerstein’s production of, ‘The Sound of Music’. Others we have presented include, ‘The King and I’ and ‘Fiddler on the Roof’, all of which I have been both Musical Director and Co-Director.
So that gives you some insight as to who I am and who /what I love in my life! I hope you enjoy this space!
