Since graduating from The University of Melbourne in 1980 Ted’s experience in education has been varied and extensive. Ted has worked in a number of Catholic secondary schools, the Catholic Education Office Melbourne and with Edmund Rice Education Australia (EREA). Further experience in Western Australia saw Ted design and implement alternative educational curriculum at senior levels that responded to the needs of non-tertiary bound young people after the post compulsory years.

Prior to becoming Principal at St Joseph’s College Melbourne, Ted was a First Assistant to the Principal in a number of schools with particular responsibility for Wellbeing. Ted had previously held a number of curriculum and wellbeing leadership positions that have included Science Coordinating, Head of Mathematics, House Coordinating and Careers Counselling. Ted has worked in educational settings with primary and secondary campuses and multi campus schools and taught in both single sex (boys and girls) and coeducational schools.

Ted is committed to Catholic Education, with his spiritual formation influenced by many religious orders, and especially enriched and influenced by the charism of Edmund Ignatius Rice and Mary MacKillop.

Ted believes that establishing a climate that is welcoming and hospitable is central to creating an environment that is inclusive to all and makes people want to belong, and therefore a significant focus for Ted will be in working with primary and secondary schools in promoting an environment where young people feel welcomed, safe and valued so that they can be effectively engaged in the learning process.
