My name is Wendy O’Hanlon. I grew up on the North Shore in Sydney and went to Pymble Public School until the age of 8. I then went to PLC Ingleholme until year 6 and then transferred to the main school at PLC Pymble for my High School Years. I loved going to school and always felt that my school was an extension of my family. I felt I belonged. My passion from an early age was to teach and I followed this passion, first by attending Teacher’s College and then Macquarie University where I obtained a BA DIPED and had also majored in English and Linguistics.

I have also attended a two year course in Process Psychology and I have also completed a Certificate 1V in Training and Assessment. I also trained with “I Can Read” and teach with I Can Read Centres in Sydney.
