Pastoral Teaching Assistant
What I enjoy about my job
I enjoy being surrounded by enthusiastic and inspiring people every day and how each day brings something new. I also enjoy how the most bizarre occurrences are considered totally normal: a tortoise taking an afternoon nap in the classroom cupboard, for example.
Who or what inspires me
The outdoors puts everything into perspective for me, especially the mountains. Amongst other things, it reminds me that we are each a microscopic part of a gigantic picture, which I find both empowering and inspiring.
Little known fact about me
I once got lost in the Australian bush at night and spent many hours surrounded by the glowing eyes of possums, kangaroos, huge spiders and probably a few snakes too!
