Roger began teaching in 1980. Working initially in the Technical School division he was heavily involved in leadership roles in well-being and professional development.
He developed an interest and involvement in integrated curriculum and gifted education early in his career, and has been involved in the design and planning of several new schools.
Roger is the Foundation Principal of Nossal High School, the first purpose built co-educational government selective entry school in Victoria. He was responsible for the physical design of the school buildings and teaching spaces; the appointment of all staff; and the development of an ICT rich 21st century curriculum for high performing students.
While only 6 years old Nossal is one of the highest performing schools in the state and Roger is committed to ensuring that the school continues to implement innovative and creative approaches.
