Hi, I’m Ellen and I have my Certificate Three in Early Childhood Education and Care. I started working at Possum Place in February this year and have been in the industry for a year and a half. I have also worked in a children’s toy library, 3 year old kindy and a teacher’s aid for children with additional needs.
I love watching children grow and I enjoy teaching them new skills. Children are a joy to be around and are always learning new skills. I have learnt that all children are different and you have to build relationships with children and families. I love having a job with a purpose, where I feel like I am making a positive impact on young children.
Outside of work I love to garden and do craft. I spend most of my time with my family. I have a 16 year old son and lots of nieces and nephews. I am excited to be continuing my journey in the Possum room next year!
