Senior Tutor - Early Years Education

Institute of Education

I am a passionate early childhood teacher who has taught in a variety of kindergartens as well as being a professional development facilitator for a short period of time.  My education interests include how teachers assess and document children's learning and plan to extend it, the transition from early childhood settings to school, and the role of mentoring in supporting beginning teachers.  My current teaching work is focused around assessment and planning and supporting students on practicum and I am also completing a Doctorate of Education.
