I was educated on the Northern Beaches, obtained my teaching degree at Kuring-Gai College of Advanced Education.  I have taught in the public, catholic and private sectors as well as lecturing at UTS Insearch in Haymarket in Robotics. I have 4 children as a blended family with our youngest in Year 9.  My passion for teaching robotics began when I saw how the medium engaged all students of all abilities, it is a fabulous medium for STEAM, cross curricula enquiry based learning, focusing on problem solving, collaboration, computational thinking and student designed learning. Here at Robokids we are creating the mandatory student shift from digital user to digital creator.  As educators we have a responsibility to ensure our Aussie students will be ready for their ever changing world which lies ahead of them,  a world which will be increasingly digitised and automated. Together with our schools  we will ensure our students are the innovators, problem solvers and industry leaders of the future.
