Position : Dean of Science
Sort : 17

Attending Macquarie University in Sydney and Massey University in New Zealand, I graduated with a BSc in Biochemistry and a Graduate Diploma in teaching. After teaching in Canada and New Zealand, I completed a Master of Education with a focus on effective teaching practices/pedagogies in Biology and Chemistry.

Now in my 9th year at Redlands College, I greatly value being able to connect with students both inside and outside the classroom in order to help them maximise their learning opportunities. A particular interest of mine is to help students to connect with extra-curricular Science programs, research organisations and universities in order to enrich student learning in and excitement about Science.

As Dean of Science, I am grateful to be working with a team of teachers who have the privileged opportunity to help students explore and understand the handiwork of our supreme Creator.
