Class 5 Teacher
I graduated from Taruna College, New Zealand, in 2012, and while I was researching Steiner schools in Australia, I happened upon Golden Hill. I was awe inspired by the beauty of the school, and was lucky enough to be appointed as the Class 1/2 teacher for 2013. All of this happened without me seeing Golden Hill with my own eyes. When I arrived at the school for the first time, it was love at first sight. I could not believe how lucky I was to take on my first class at a school that was so magical and picturesque.
One of my favourite aspects of Steiner education is the endeavour to foster a reverence for nature. I love coming up with stories that cultivate a respect for the Earth, which provides sustenance for us all. Denmark is the perfect community to do this in, I am inspired by the family participation in the school and the joy I am surrounded in during the festivals and community events.
Everyday I am thankful that I get to teach children in a way that nurtures them academically, emotionally and physically. I am fortunate to be part of a school that honours and protects the wonder of childhood.
