Name: Miss Smith
Title: Kindergarten Teacher / Infants Sport Co-Ordinator
Career background: I gained valuable experience teaching in a range of schools in the area before helping to pioneer & set up the Transition to Kindy Program here at Summerland. Through having taught in that role for three years, it has given me valuable insights into how to support them best in their first year of school.
My teaching approach/style: It’s my privilege to provide students with a welcoming classroom environment & nurturing atmosphere. In my teaching I focus on speaking positive, encouraging words; knowing each individual student and how they are unique.
I love: I loved the sense of community at Summerland when I was a high school student here & how much the teachers cared about us. Coming back years later as a teacher it has been inspiring to see how much my fellow colleagues continue to invest into their students & our school.
For fun...Teacher inspiration: ‘Ms Honey’ from ‘Matilda’ by Roald Dahl.
