Personal Message: I had always dreamed of becoming a teacher from a very young age and had many great role models who had inspired me all throughout my life and education, in Italy, where I was born and Australia where my family came to live. I believe that wonderful teachers can make such a difference to the life and future of every child! I wanted to be that passionate and inspiring teacher who could really make that difference!
