Working with children has been a big part of my life for a long time. Being a hands on mum for my own 2 children and then working with children for almost 25 years. I have worked my way down the spectrum having taught Grade 3, Grade 2, Grade 1, Preschool and now Kindy. I tend to be a bit “old fashioned” in my approach to teaching children, but love to support and extend on children’s ideas and encourage imaginative play. I love children’s literature, and like nothing better than bring books alive. I believe that instilling a love of literacy is so important for young learners.
