After working as a Business Analyst in the insurance industry for nearly 12 years, I am now pursuing a
career change and commenced studying Primary Teaching in July 2013.
I am studying toward a Master of Teaching (Primary) qualification at Swinburne University, and have
enjoyed the return to study, especially as I find the material relevant and exciting, and feel that it is
reinforcing my suitability and desire to become a teacher.

throughout the course will complement and enrich my studies. I have enjoyed my time thus far in the
classroom, and appreciate the variety of teaching and learning styles I will be exposed to during my
I am a well organised person with strong attention to detail. I believe that my personal and work life has
given me great communication skills; I will relate well to both students and teachers in the school
