During my younger years my favourite subject at school would always change based on the teachers I had. I always enjoyed the classes where the teachers exhibited the most enthusiasm for their subjects. My passion for science developed in my VCE years, specifically Biology and Psychology. I was particularly interested in learning about human behaviour and genetics, questioning whether certain human behaviours are influenced predominantly by nature or nurture.
I graduated from The University of Melbourne in 2014 where I completed my Bachelor of Science, majoring in Animal Biotechnology. After my studies I took some time to travel and spent 2 months teaching English to children in rural Bali. It was at this time that I discovered my passion for teaching and desire to continue working with children. Upon my return home I enrolled in the Diploma of Teaching where I had the incredible opportunity to complete my Masters degree as an exchange student in Finland.
In 2017 I started working at a secondary school in the Western Suburbs of Melbourne as a Science and STEM teacher. Working as an integral member in the development of the schools first STEM Academy, I was able to learn about and witness first-hand the importance of student autonomy, collaboration and real-life application. I feel that it is incredibly important in this modern day that we as educators encourage our students to be life-long learners and problem solvers so they are better equipped to tackle the challenges of our ever-changing world.
