It's hard to believe it's Term 2 already. It has been lovely getting to know all the children in Room 8. Term 2 is looking exciting and has lots happening!
What's Happening in Term 2?
Literacy: We are learning about information reports - the text structure, language and different strategies we can use to explore and develop these.

I love teaching and the children and people who make it an amazing journey. I strive to install a love of learning and in all of my students to reach their potential. I strongly believe all children have the capacity to learn – as teachers we just need to find the way to teach them.
I have adult children - Jacob, Saffron, Madison, Luca (Maddy and Luca are twins) and Charlotte. I have two amazing grandchildren - Maiah who is 10 and Easton who is 6 years old. Family is hugely important to me and with even grown children family life is busy!
My passion and hobbies are horses and animals! I live rurally on a farm where I own and ride my own horses and agist others on my property. I have a passion for rescue work and as many may tell you we have has a few animals visit our class. We also five lovely dogs, four cats and some chooks! I love the outdoors and the peace of the country and enjoy the farming lifestyle.
I am absolutely looking forward to getting to know all your children and working with them as a team throughout the year. If you have any queries at all please do not hesitate to contact me email@example.com.
