Education has always been Charlotte’s life passion and, coming to primary education as her second career, she brings a range of life skills. Having graduated from the University of Cambridge, UK with a degree in Geography, she followed a career as a lawyer in London and Bristol, UK, until moving with her family to the Northern Rivers in 2017. Upon completing her Masters in Primary Teaching at Griffith University, obtaining a distinction GPA, she has gained experience across all year levels from K-6 within both government and independent primary schools.
As a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, London, UK, she is passionate about conservation and giving students a global perspective as well as opportunities to connect with local community projects.
She loves being close to nature and wildlife and wants to help children to explore and learn about their environment and be in awe of the world around them. Although she used to be a tennis coach, she now spends more of her time in the ocean. She considers her greatest strengths to be kindness, empathy, determination and a positive attitude.
By connecting with her students and understanding their personality, passions, learning needs and preferred learning styles, she aims to nurture her students to become lifelong learners, with a growth mindset. She aims to build their resilience and determination by giving them engaging and diverse learning experiences and opportunities in a supportive environment within and outside the school walls to enable each child to fulfil their true potential and connect with the world around them.
She is excited to be joining the inspiring team at Living School.
