I am a Learning Assistant and I have a Bachelors Degree in Biotechnology. I have had over 4 years of working experience at preschools overseas. I have undergone training in Montessori Methodologies and I try to apply the philosophies wherever possible when working with little children. I am passionate about working with little children. The energy and enthusiasm I see in them everyday is what motivates me. I can help children learn the letter sounds and gradually take them into the world of reading. I love to sing, crochet and cook. I am so glad to be a part of Freemans Bay School.
