I was born in Townsville in Queensland, where I attended school up to year 5 when my parents bought a farm on the Darling Downs in southern Queensland. Despite now living in NSW longer than Queensland I am maroon through and through. I have lived and worked in Western Sydney all of my adult life. I am currently the Deputy Principal at Model Farms High School and have been at this great school for 5 years.
Before my time at Model Farms I was the DP at Concord High School, Head Teacher Social Science at Strathfield South High School and a teacher at Cherrybrook Technology High and Cabramatta High School.
In addition to my role as Deputy, I am a teacher in the HSIE faculty, teaching Business Studies and Geography. I have taught Business Studies to the HSC for 18 years and Geography for 20 years. I am also a qualified English teacher - but don't tell anyone please.
