Wombat Room Educators

Hi, my name is Katie

My name is Katie.  I am from New York in the United States.  I have a Bachelors of Childhood Education from Geneseo State University of New York and I am certified to teach both Early Childhood and Primary Education.  I have been in Australia for a year and a half and taught kindergarten last year in Port Melbourne.  I love to teach, especially at the kindergarten age; the children are capable of learning so much and truly enjoy and appreciate exploring, discovering and learning.  I believe it is extremely rewarding and wonderful to watch children grow and mature over the kindergarten year.  I enjoy bringing my high energy, passion, and welcoming personality into the classroom.  I am very excited to be a part of the Nara Family for the 2014 Kindergarten year.


I have my certificate III in children services and I am currently studying my diploma in children services. I have been working at Nara since 2009 and look forward to working with your child in the near future.


I was born and raised in Iran and moved to Australia in 2007. I have more than 25 years experience working with children in Iran.  After completing my diploma in Children Services at NMIT in 2012 I started working as a qualified educator at Nara. Through my time at Nara my experience and knowledge of children has provided me with strong skills in working with children.
