I have been teaching for over 30 years. My passion is connecting with children to help strengthen their emotional and mental wellbeing. I have seen first-hand how difficult it is for some children to succeed in the classroom due to low self-esteem and anxiety. I value my role as an educator as it enables me to support children’s social and emotional learning to assist with student success, engagement and achievement. My pedagogy as a teacher has always been to ‘make a difference’ and ‘bring the best out in every child’. As a trained facilitator and experienced teacher, I am excited to be able to empower children to self-manage their anxiety and develop life-long coping strategies. This program helps build children’s emotional resilience and equip them to deal with the day to day stresses that life brings.
