Hello St John’s Community!
My name is Jenna and I am thrilled to join the Two Hub! As well as working in the Two Hub, I will also be the Learning and Teaching Leader for the One and Two Hub. I am eager for the opportunity to collaborate with educators and the children across these two Hubs, and collaboratively foster vibrant and enriching learning environments.
I feel very fortunate to have worked at St John’s for the past five and a half years and am incredibly grateful for all the learning opportunities I have had so far. As an educator I am passionate about creating a learning environment where children are provided the opportunity to explore, inquire and discover their passions and curiosities.
In my spare time I love to spend time with my family and friends, reading, learning new things and exploring different parts of the world. I have recently returned from a trip to Italy and am excited for all the adventures that 2024 will bring.
Hello! My name is Mairead and I joined the St John’s team in 2022. I’m very excited to remain part of such a warm and welcoming community this year. In 2024 I will be part of the Learning and Teaching team as the Numeracy Leader as well as an educator in the Two Hub.
My teaching philosophy is built on the values of respect, inclusion and equity. My approach ensures children are at the centre of all learning experiences. I try to create a safe learning environment that encourages children to become critical and creative thinkers. I believe our goal as educators is to support children in their learning journey so that they can grow in their understanding of themselves and the world around them.
When I am not at St John’s I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, visiting places around our lovely state, country and world as well as eating lots of the delicious food our city has to offer. I love creating pottery in my home studio and have a very small online business.
I am looking forward to spending another year building relationships with the families in the St John’s community.
