My first teaching job was in a remote Indigenous community in the Australian Outback. The children in my class had a pet crocodile called Mr Bombastic.
I eventually went back to university and obtained a Masters in Special Education (behavioural and emotional difficulties) and a Graduate Certificate of Arts.
I have lived in Mexico, Norway, the USA and most recently Mongolia where I was the head of primary learning support and a year 2 teacher. I enjoy rock climbing, camping, cycling and writing.
