Hi, I have been teaching at Kerry Street since 1998 in a variety of roles and classes, mainly in the early childhood years. I have always been a believer in play based, hands on, FUN education…especially in the early years.
I like to use humour and word play, music and drama, games and imagination to encourage creativity and self-expression. I love to encourage independence and self-regulation as well as encouraging the children to play, play and play.
In my other life I have spent many years traveling the world and being a semi-professional musician, dad joke specialist, keen Dockers supporter, home renovator and motorcycle enthusiast. I have written two books and play soccer twice a week.
My daughter goes to Kindy here because Tom is the King-of-Kings of teachers! And all my family agrees.
