Over the years, Nuala's teaching qualification has enabled her to enjoy a number of diverse experiences.
Her full-time work has included team-teaching in an Open-Plan Infant department in country N.S.W. and E.S.L. classroom teaching in a 97% migrant school in Sydney.
Nuala is a migrant herself, so this work was particularly close to her heart.
Prior to her departure for overseas, she enjoyed a term spent assisting in the pre-school division of an Independent Progressive Sydney primary school.
Pursuing her interest in the creative and performing arts, she enjoyed a summer in Denver, Colorado working as a camp counsellor. Her role was to coordinate the arts programme for 7-14 year olds.
Returning to Australia, after 3 years of working and travelling overseas, Nuala commenced work as a Development and Training Officer in a hospital setting. Here she provided a recreational programme for 3-7 year olds.
While raising her children, Nuala has enjoyed casual work in pre-schools as well as nine years of relief work (K-6) in a number of primary schools. This portfolio includes a variety of permanent part-time executive release positions in Lower, Middle and Upper Primary, as well as the role of Music Teacher across all grades.
Nuala's background includes performance in musicals, amateur dramatics and vocal ensembles. She enjoys writing lyrics and stories for children as well as adults.
