I am a freelance writer who has her ears and eyes open ready to report on Melbourne and its surrounds. The Victorian capital is a vibrant, multicultural city whose people and events are constant stimulation for me. I have self-published as well as been published by  Fairfax Media. I hope you find my articles an interesting, informative and entertaining read.

I am also a teacher of German and English as an Additional Language and an advocate for literacy ‘for all’, including new Australians and Indigenous students. I am committed to seeing the outcomes for Indigenous students improve. For my paper on the barriers to learning for Indigenous students as well as initiatives which are seeing an improvement in outcomes, read my paper:

What are the barriers to effective learning for Indigenous students?

As a bilingual Australian and teacher of German, I am an advocate for the teaching and learning of languages in Australian schools. For my paper on the advantages of learning a second language read my paper:

Why should the learning of languages be part of the school curriculum?
