Marianne’s career in education began thirty years ago teaching in a large metropolitan school in Melbourne before moving with her family to the Diocese of Sale to take up a teaching position in Korumburra. This association with the diocese lasted nine years working as a teacher and principal in South Gippsland. Moving back to city life Marianne has undertaken three further principal appointments and has held the position of principals’ consultant. This extensive experience in Melbourne and Sydney has enabled her to build leadership capacity and improve outcomes for students across a number of school and system settings.

Marianne’s role is to support school communities to enhance their Catholic identity and continually improve the education offered to young people and their families in Catholic schools of the Diocese of Sale.

By improving quality professional leadership and assistance to school principals, leadership teams and school communities in their search for continuing improvement and engaging staff and students in a learning culture, Marianne hopes to contribute to the development and implementation of Diocesan and school programs and directions.
