“I have been a teacher since a “little girl”…so my mum says. Long long ago when I chose to embark on Visual Arts Education, I was fresh out school and considering either Education or Interior Design and during my time working I have had the joy to do both.”
Before joining us at Norwest, Terie taught Visual Arts from Kindy to Year 12 for the past 14 years, prior to that having her own business in the Interior Design Industry. All of these experiences she brings to the classroom, shaping her approach and teaching style.
Terie feels strongly that the arts provide a conduit to express ourselves, develop our natural creativity and see the world through different eyes. “I have had the pleasure of seeing many, many of my students go on to further their studies in Fine Arts, Architecture, Curatorial and roles as Art Historians, Visual Communication, Interior Designers, Photographers, Fashion Designers and the list goes on. I seek to unlock student’s talents and enable them to achieve their personal best.”
Terie and her husband and have the blessing of three grown children and live in the bush overlooking Galston Gorge. She attends St Jude’s Church, Dural and is actively involved in Mission Aviation Fellowship, heading up Advocacy in NSW with her husband Chris. Her home is always dynamic with lots of people, events and entertaining, they have always encouraged their kids to bring their friends home.
At Norwest Christian College the role Terie has taken on is Visual Arts Education but she says “growing the Kingdom is the ministry and I look forward to the honour of having your child in my class and the contribution I can make in their lives at your school. I am greatly excited about what God has in store for me, in all components of my role at the school; in the classroom as a Visual Art specialist, in my role pastorally and in Christian Community.”
