I studied a Bachelor of Arts in Modern Asian Studies at Griffth University. After working in International Banking I studied my Bachelor of Education at James Cook University. I taught foreign languages and music for several years in primary schools before moving to secondary school. Currently, I teach Japanese and Italian and English in Middle School. My professional interests include e-learning with emphasis on language learning. I love languages and see their importance to understand and communicate both in person and digitally. I actively support Modern Language Teachers Association and other cultural associations in my area and share my learning experiences with colleagues.
