What does a normal day entail?
A normal day always includes housework! I prefer days when I teach, babysit my grandsons or go out with my husband.
What do you love most about your job?
I love helping people from overseas feel more at home in Australia and I think I can do this by teaching English. I came to Australia with my family when I was 14, so I have some understanding of what it is like to move to a different country.
What do you love doing outside of work?
I love playing with my grandsons, listening to music and reading.
What were you going to be ‘when you grew up’?
I knew from the age of 8 or 9 that I had to be a teacher and have never thought of doing anything else.
What is a totally different job that you would like to try?
I have no wish to try anything else.
What have you studied?
I studied French, German, English and History as part of my Arts Degree. I then studied for a Diploma of Education so I could be a high school teacher. My Master of Education (TESOL) degree has enabled me to teach English as an additional language.
