Reading Recovery

I have been teaching at OPS for 10+ years now and feel like I am almost part of the woodwork! I began my teaching career with 12 years in Early Childhood before retraining as a Primary teacher.  I have been a classroom teacher for the majority of my time here and, since completing my training as a Reading Recovery teacher a few years ago, I have stepped out of the classroom and into teaching Reading Recovery. In 2018 I completed my training as a SPELD teacher as I have a passion for teaching children who find mainstream learning challenging and have added private students to my teaching day.
When not zipping around the school I love to tread the boards in local theaters or escape to my craft room or vege garden - or just having a good old laugh :)
