Summary

I am a patient and enthusiastic teacher with experience teaching primary year levels as well as physical education.
I have a great interest in inclusive education, additional learning needs and performing arts. I am looking forward
to being given the opportunity to help guide children in a caring, professional and educationally rich environment.

I am well aware of the understanding and encouragement needed to help motivate a young person to strive with
optimism towards their goals. Therefore I would love to work in a setting such as Pascoe Vale North Primary
School where the ethos of the school is to help children of all learning abilities reach their full potential.
