TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Primary school classroom teacher, working with children with special needs and from low socioeconomic backgrounds, working with students with disabilities and difficulties and gifted and talented students. I have completed special training around mentoring pre-service and beginning teachers and have a huge passion for this area. I am involved in the creation and implementation of student teacher programs and believe it is so important for the future of education. I have been a year level coordinator for 6 years and filled in for head of curriculum when required. I have been in many teaching and development teams over the years including ICT, school wide behaviour, curriculum, gifted and talented, literacy, numeracy and direct instruction.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Explicit and direct instruction. This is so powerful and too often seen as 'chalk and talk'. True EI is engaging and leads to academic success for all students as they are given a goal, taught exactly what steps they can take to achieve that goal and given numerous opportunities to practise and receive feedback. My students love learning, love coming to school and have great self-efficacy as they see themselves progressing and learning. It is also fast paced so students are never bored.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

First Class Honours, University Medal - For graduating with the highest GPA of all graduates for that year.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Bachelor of Education (primary) - majoring in middle schooling.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

When I first left high school I began studying engineering. I soon decided that I didn't enjoy it so I left university and worked full time. After a while I decided to study teaching and it's the best decision I ever made and I've never regretted it! I have spent my entire career so far working in low socioeconomic schools and I have loved every minute of it. My experiences have taught me that all children can achieve academic success with the right attitude, pedagogy and teaching resources. I have created a TPT store as a means to sharing resources which will save teachers valuable time whilst contributing to academic success for all students.
