Kaya! My name is Shondell. I’m a Noongar woman from Perth. I am married with three beautiful girls. I have been living in the Goldfields for the past 12 years with my family. My role at St. Joseph’s is the Aboriginal Teacher Assistant. I work with students from Pre Kindy to Year 6. I am also the Family Liaison Officer for Our Kukurra Tawarra Playgroup (Our Journey Together). Part of my role is to interact with families and understand them from a cultural view. I enjoy working with the children and their families to educate our next generation.
