1. Where were you before this and what persuaded you to join Concordia College?
I came to Concordia from St Mark's in Mount Barker, having spent a year there as a part-time LSO and relief teacher. Prior to that I had various teaching contracts at St Michael's in Hahndorf, mixed in with relief work across Hills schools. The idea of a taste of something different at Concordia excited me, as did the idea of taking on the role of a Co-Educator.
2. Three words to describe you.
Fun-loving, easy-going, friendly.
3. What is your motivation or inspiration in your role?
I absolutely love facilitating students to achieve ‘aha’ moments in their learning. There’s nothing like witnessing a child discover something new for the first time, gain an understanding of a new concept or make a realisation that they can do it.
4. If you had a superpower, what would it be?
I would love to fly. Exhilerating, exciting, fast paced, and I’d never get stuck in traffic ever again. I could observe the world from a different perspective and enjoy the view.
5. Who would you invite to a dinner party of six guests and why? Alternatively, tell us something you might like to share that we could not possibly know?
I’d invite Luke and Joel Smallbone from For King and Country as well as the crew from Rend Collective. We’d share stories and insights, and then after dinner we’d all have an awesome jam session, dancing around, laughing and singing praises to God. It would have to be more than six guests as I couldn’t let my family miss out on the fun… and I wouldn’t cook, or they wouldn’t come back.
