I am a teacher, passionate about learning and teaching for both students and teachers. I am committed to the strengthening of the teaching profession, and enhancing the capacity of teachers to be leaders for learning in the 21st Century.

My interests in education include promoting and developing innovative practices and paradigms for effective learning and teaching, and supporting processes for building teacher capacity.

I have held senior leadership positions within the Catholic sector across the greater Sydney metropolitan area.

In 2005 I was awarded a Churchill Fellowship to examine teacher-led innovation and development to improve professional practice which took me to Canada, England, Scotland and Germany in 2006.

Currently I am finishing a PhD in Education through University of Sydney. My research is on Teacher conceptions of social justice in schooling.

I am a member of the Australian College of Educators (ACE) where I am a committee member of the Inner Sydney branch, the Australian Council for Educational Leaders (ACEL), the Australian Curriculum Studies Association (ACSA) and the International Congress for School Effectiveness and Improvement (ICSEI) where I am an ICSEI Ambassador.
