Personal message: As a primary educator, I believe in order for students to grow and develop into successful, faith-filled individuals they need to be immersed in purposeful learning experiences, collaborate with their peers and challenge themselves to take risks and apply critical and creative thinking skills.
Areas of responsibility: The Stage 3 Coordinator has the responsibility to assist teachers to know their students and adapt teaching and learning to suit their individual needs. As a Literacy coach, it is Andrew’s role to work with teachers to develop their skills in teaching Literacy to improve student learning.
