About me

I have a passion for education – I love sharing fun facts as well as learning new things everyday. Since completing my HSC at St Joseph’s Catholic High School, I have been interested in becoming a teacher. In a learning environment, I believe children can develop a positive sense of valuing themselves and recognising their worth within the world. This is very important and I aim to foster this in a supportive and safe environment. I believe developing a positive relationship with children, catering to their needs and promoting self confidence and respect allows them to flourish as individuals.

About me

I have worked with children for the last 13 years and couldn’t imagine doing anything else! I have recently moved to Australia from the United Kingdom, where I worked as a primary teacher. I enjoy providing creative learning experiences for children and believe that learning is most effective when children are having fun, engaged and motivated. I love fostering children’s curiosity about the world and hope to inspire them to be whoever and whatever they would like to be. I am keen to ensure that children have a warm, caring environment and look forward to working with you and your child.

About me

My role as a teacher and educator is to promote confidence and self-belief in each child’s ability to learn, teamed with the skills needed to empower them to reach their maximum potential. I take a holistic approach to education, being attentive to the whole child. Children’s wellbeing is central to their development and I recognise that forming strong partnerships with staff and parents is paramount. I aim to ensure that my knowledge and skills are consistently updated to provide innovative teaching, suitable for the 21st Century.

About me

I have been privileged to teach children for over seven years. My teaching philosophy can be summed up best by the words of Alexander K. Trenfor ‘The best teachers are those who show you where to look, but don’t tell you what you see.’ I value every child’s unique perspective and believe that I can also learn from the students I work with. I develop a caring and supportive environment where positive praise, enjoyment and discovery are priorities.  I believe student welfare is of upmost importance and look forward to working with your child.

About me

Since I was coaching netball to the younger players at 14 years of age, I knew that I wanted to turn this passion into a career. Now, as a primary school teacher, I love teaching my students and supporting their growth through friendships, social skills and positive changes. I enjoy working with children and taking them to new places. I have lived in London and New Zealand for several years and I am so excited to be back home in Australia working with our beautiful children. I aim to create a safe and caring environment for all, where everyone is accepted and grows.

About me

I have always wanted to make a career out of my strong passion for education and working with children. I care about the wellbeing of children and believe that education is the most powerful tool a child can be offered. I strive to make the learning environment a positive place where children feel accepted, are encouraged to grow within themselves and feel supported. I hope to one day be the teacher your child remembers and be the reason they believe in themselves to be able to achieve their goals in life. I look forward to working with your children.

About me

I am half way through studying my Bachelor of Primary Education degree at the University of Wollongong and enjoy playing with and looking after children during before and after school care. Last year I travelled to Fiji as part of my course and taught at a primary school for 3 weeks, I learnt a lot about the value of education and helping children to explore their talents. I assisted in kindergarten orientation at local primary school and enjoyed seeing children transition into a new learning environment at primary school.
