TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Hi, I’m Mel! I am a primary school teacher and literacy specialist. I have been a teacher for 15+ years in Western Australia. It’s my passion to provide teachers with time-saving resources that help them thrive.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I have a particular interest in helping struggling readers and providing high-quality, evidence-based literacy instruction to help kids flourish. I love being able to work with teachers and provide support. I have previously offered in-class coaching for graduate teachers and mentored teachers across a broad range of topics. I started my blog, Top Notch Teaching in 2012 because I knew so many teachers who were struggling to balance quality and excellence in teaching with time management. I hope, through my resources, to make it easier for you to balance the demands of being a teacher.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I graduated from my teaching degree with first-class honors. I also received the Miles Medal for Excellence in Education (dux of the year).

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I completed a Bachelor of Education (primary), first-class honors at Curtin University in Perth, Western Australia.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I live in Perth, Australia, with my husband, Stephen, and daughter, Emily. Emily is my inspiration and chief tester of many of the resources. She's fantastic at providing feedback from a kid's point of view, and she's always willing to try new things. My sister Amanda keeps me to task by editing products and managing my social media.
