Hannah is an innovative teacher, passionate about encouraging students to be globally
minded and to strive towards building a more just and sustainable world.
Throughout her career, Hannah has demonstrated a commitment to working with culturally
diverse communities and students. During her university placement, she taught in a remote
Indigenous community in Kununurra, Australia. She then spent four years as a primary
teacher in a multicultural school in Melbourne’s west before moving into a specialist role
teaching English as an Additional Language to newly arrived refugee children, supporting
students in the initial stages of language acquisition. In 2018, Hannah joined a Nord Anglia
school in China, teaching Year 4 for two years. Following this, she joined Dover Court where
she teaches EAL.
While working in China, Hannah demonstrated her commitment to address social and environmental issues, through her role as UNICEF coordinator. In this role she facilitated
student-led initiatives, which raised thousands of dollars for charity and she also
implemented sustainable practices around the school. She organised a breakfast club and
developed a pen-pal mentoring program.
When not at school, Hannah loves travelling and sport. She has been involved in a range of
sports, from running and swimming to basketball and gymnastics. She also enjoys cooking
and eating out with friends.
