Tori Ambler

CF-2 (Year 2 Teacher)

My dream for Living School is that all members thrive within a sense of community, inspiration, and connection, for themselves, each other, and the world around them for a sustainable future.

My primary goal as a teacher is to nurture the mind, body and spirit of each student, while teaching with impact to empower and engage.

I endeavour to inspire students to strive for something bigger than themselves, to contribute to and respect the world around them, and most importantly, be happy, kind and loving individuals with a strong sense of belonging and community.


Tori has been teaching both Kindergarten and Year 1 within her hometown of Melbourne, for the past 3 years. She also has experience across all year levels from K-6 within both government and independent primary schools.

Tori has worked for lululemon Athletica, as part of their community engagement and customer experience team, as well as a yoga teacher, before returning to primary education with even greater purpose and passion. This enabled her to continue to expand her skills, knowledge, and development for teaching and learning in partnership with students, parents and the wider community.

Tori educates soulfully to influence each student’s development through real-life contexts. The development of mutually respectful relationships with students is fundamental to support all students to understand how they learn. Through this conscious and purposeful design, Tori ensures learning is challenging, creative, and interest based, enabling younger minds to make connections through academic exploration within real-life experiences.

Tori is passionate about holistic education and is excited to be a part of the Living School community.
