Introducing our newest Year 5 teacher and staff member, Mrs Reeks! She comes to us with a wealth of experience and we invite you to read the below profile on her career and teaching approach.
Name: Mrs Liz Reeks
Title/Subject: Year 5 Teacher
Career background: Before becoming a teacher I was working in architecture and graphic design. Most recently I was a specialist art teacher at a primary school in Sydney.
My teaching approach/style: I want my kids to know that success doesn’t come from talent – it comes from determination, hard work, and learning from our mistakes.
I love: that all the staff at school know and follow Jesus. It shines through in every decision they make and in every interaction they have with students. It's what makes Summerland such an amazing place to work!
Favourite quote: “What does a vibrant Christian community look like? It’s honest. Struggling. Loving. Failing. Clinging to Jesus. Repenting to each other. Forgiving each other. Placing others ahead of ourselves. Helping point each other to the cross. This is the beautiful mess of the gospel-centered community.” Quote from Robert Thune.
