To me, Cheryl is the definition of a community-minded human. She teaches English to adults in a college – but this is only the beginning of her role. She opens her heart and her home to newly-arrived Australians, creating a unique community in which they can form support networks and friendships. Cheryl found a passion for teaching when she lived in the Middle East and taught women to speak English. We chat about her love of teaching, her belief that it’s her purpose to help others and how we can all open our hearts a little more to isolated members of our society.
