I was born and raised in Malaysia and came to Sydney in 2008. I completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts, majoring in photography at the College of Fine Arts before finishing my Masters of Teaching in Early Childhood at the University of Sydney. I have been working as a teacher in early childhood settings since 2013.
I firmly believe in play-based learning as it invites children to experience learning through exploration, improvisation, imagination as well as through social interaction. I love exploring the creative arts and believe that it provides children with multiple languages to represent and express their ideas. My view is that the most valuable learning happens as an ongoing process when children are given the time, space and guidance to explore and investigate their interests. What I value most about working with children is honouring their roles as co-creators of learning and that my role is to nurture their curiosity and develop their dispositions to be confident and involved learners.
I hope for my time in Gumnut Gardens to be filled with lots of love, inspiration and creativity. I look forward to continuously collaborating and learning from all those around me to continue my own professional growth as a teacher.
In my spare time, I enjoy being physically active with yoga and learning tricks on the trampoline. You can also often find me at or by the beach enjoying time in nature. I love reading, exploring the creative arts and travelling to help keep me inspired.
