Meet our Principal

Welcome to Lindfield Learning Village! As a new school we are thrilled to be working collaboratively with our students, staff, parents and wider community to establish our school, build our sense of belonging and identity, and explore new contemporary approaches to education and learning. We are brave and tenacious and we are committed to shaping a learning environment which has student wellbeing at the heart.

My 30 years as an educator have continually shaped my vision for the future of education in NSW. My passion is to shift the “default position” of education from a 19th century model to one which not only meets but excels in meeting the needs of the young people of today as they head out into a future which requires them to be agile, flexible and adaptable learners.

I am very excited to be leading a school of the future in a very strong and supportive community. It is an extraordinary opportunity and an enormous privilege to build a flagship school for the children and young people of NSW. At Lindfield Learning Village we are building the new educational model which will fundamentally shift the way we think of school and will shape the global education revolution over the next decade.

“My former life as an engineer has provided the foundations for my identity a teacher. I have lived the reality and it is not packaged into individual subject areas. It is collaborative, multidisciplinary - and fun! I love the learning that happens when creative ideas are allowed to become real.”

“LLV embodies our life’s journey. Full of exciting challenges, mistakes, learning opportunities, friends, family all while forming real connections with people, communities and cultures. I’m so excited by the fact that for once the students aren’t the only ones learning but the educators too! Can’t wait to see how the school grows and develops in the years to come. #LLV2019”
