Having an administration and marketing background, Belinda made a recent career change after her youngest son started Kindergarten. She decided to follow her passion and enrolled to study Education Support. “This was a passion I'd had for a number of years but didn't pursue due to having a young family. During my prac at Norwest Christian College I was amazed at the positive atmosphere, fantastic, caring staff and wonderful students. It is a place I now am lucky enough to call my workplace.”
Belinda recalls one of the most defining moments of why she wanted to be a teacher was when she assisted a student who required support, “Thanks to the supportive nature of both the staff and parent that student made rapid progress in their learning. This showed me how quickly the correct support can make a massive difference in the life of a student in a very short timeframe.”
Belinda is passionate about making a difference in the lives of students and guiding them to know Christ and his love for them. “Norwest has such a welcoming atmosphere which draws from an education centred around Christ. This can be felt in all aspects of the College.”
In her spare time Belinda enjoys decorating cakes, going fishing with her family, reading and tending her veggie garden and using the produce to then cook for her family and friends.
