I have been working with primary school children in various capacities for the past 11 years and have loved every minute of it. Whilst I have predominately taught in years 4 - 6, I spent time working as a relief teacher in the lower years as well.
I believe that lessons need to be taught using a variety of strategies and styles in order to accommodate the diversity of students. There is no magical teaching method that is going to engage all students.
Not great at winning awards, pretty good at winning raffles though.
I have an undergraduate degree in communication studies and English, and a masters degree in primary teaching.
In 2017 I am out of the classroom and spending time as a housewife and stay at home mum to my baby son. Whilst I can't wait to get back to the classroom, I am loving this time I have with my family. Logo artwork designed by the very talent artist at http://thehouseinmyhead.com.au/ - worth a look!
