Jenna Gladman

Educator

Hi!

 

My name is Jenna and I am very excited to be working in the 5/6 hub this year. I feel very fortunate to have worked at St John’s for the past three and a half years and am incredibly grateful for all the learning opportunities I have had so far. 

 

In my spare time I love to spend time with my family and friends, eating and making delicious food, learning new things and exploring different parts of the world. These summer holidays I am very excited to spend Christmas and New Years in Scotland! I plan on catching up with my close friends who I haven't had a chance to see since my two years living in Edinburgh.

Amanda Prattico

Educator

Hello, my name is Amanda and I am looking forward to joining the St John’s community in 2022. I cannot wait to meet and get to know everyone! Outside of school I enjoy spending time with my family (we have three terrific children), walking Winston, our crazy Cavoodle, going to the theatre (my most recent experience was Frozen) and travelling. I love reading and my favourite books include Harry Potter and mystery novels. I also enjoy doing puzzles and quizzes and making colourful face masks on my sewing machine.   

 

Prior to becoming a teacher, I worked in travel, hospitality and business administration. I have been fortunate to have travelled throughout the world including Europe, Asia and North America. I am also a qualified horticulturist and enjoy growing vegetables. My garden is currently producing tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce and pumpkins! 

 

I’ll be recharging over the holidays down at Phillip Island - relaxing on the beach, having BBQs and going on nature walks. See you soon!

Marty McGauran

Educator/Innovator

Hi!

My name is Marty McGauran and I am thrilled to be a member of the St John’s team. Working across the 3/4 & 5/6 levels I’m looking forward to inspiring the children to be enthusiastic and passionate learners, especially when it comes to all things technology. I have a special interest in how technology can shape our teaching and learning through meaningful and expertly crafted experiences. I am also the founder of Inform & Empower Cyber Safety Education which aims to promote healthy and safe digital citizenship throughout Australian primary schools.

 

Away from school I have an eclectic mix of interests! From gardening to Lego to footy, I enjoy spending time keeping active and hanging out with friends and family.

Eileen Winduss

Co-Educator

Hello, 

My name is Eileen and I am one of the passionate and dedicated co - educators at St John’s. I have been lucky enough to be part of the St John’s family for the past 9 years and supported children across all levels of the school from prep to grade 6.

 

 My role as co - educator involves working in the library, over at our magnificent farm or in one of our appealing hub spaces. I am very grateful for the opportunity and pleasure of working with and supporting the beautiful children we have in our school.

 

Time away from St John’s is spent with my own family, my husband and our two adult children, going to football in the winter and cricket in the summer. We are all Western Bulldogs supporters

 

I look forward to meeting our new children and catching up with our old children in the new year.
