Hi, I’m Peta

I founded Beyond the Classroom in 2018 with the mission to support educators. After more than 20 years in a variety of roles and workplaces as a teacher, assistant principal, and principal, I combine my extensive background and experiences with a non-judgmental approach. I am passionate about making a change in education by supporting educators. I am equally committed to my own continuous professional and personal development to ensure that my knowledge and skills remain relevant to my work.
