I have been a teacher at Willmott Park for 12 years and am currently in my 5th year as a Student Wellbeing Leader.
I have a passion for education and the wellbeing of all students at our school. We are privileged at our school to have a very diverse and dynamic Care Team. Our team works closely together to ensure that all students are supported as best as possible and have access to the interventions they need.
As the leader of the Care Team, I oversee the student referral process, support staff and carers with concerns and ensure that we respond in a timely manner. As part of our processes we may conduct internal observations and testing, refer to external agencies, refer to DET Allied Health professionals such as psychologists and speech therapists or provide support via our Tier 2 intervention Programs. We work together with staff, students and their families towards the best outcomes for our students.
I have been at Willmott Park Primary School since 2003. I have worked in a variety of roles including: PE, Grade 5/6, Grade 3 and Prep. I also taught dance and aerobics at Willmott Park for many years, where we competed and won state titles and then competed at the national level. I have been a Team Leader and Learning Leader before coming into the role of Wellbeing Leader in 2018, along with Luci Scamarcio.
Implementing School Wide Positive Behaviour into Willmott Park has been a pivotal role of being a Wellbeing Leader and we have been able to see the positive impacts of this system along with the school achieving Bronze Level Accreditation in 2019.
