I have eighteen years experience teaching HASS to high school students ranging in ability levels. Lessons will be geared to the needs of the individual student. Lessons will be aligned with WA curriculum standards, content and appropriate application of the content.
I have been teaching for eighteen years lower school HASS subjects and upper school Psychology. My students have done well in their ATAR Psychology scores with my guidance. I have taught a range of ability levels from SAER to gifted and talented.

Position: HASS teacher
Key responsibilities: To coordinate and teach HASS for Year 8,9 and 10 students
To run the Kindergarten
Teach art to the whole school – pre-primary to year 10
During my employment at Leonora District High School I wrote and implemented HASS programs and assessments for years 8,9 and 10. I also wrote and implemented programs for Art and the Kindergarten. The necessity to be creative with hands on programs and the fact that I was the department encouraged my initiative and imagination. For example, when teaching History I was able to do an archaeological “dig” with my students. This was not only a lot of fun for them but also for myself.
