Foundation / Year 1 Teacher

I love to work in a Christian environment where students can grow in faith and their understanding of what Jesus did for us. I appreciate the opportunity to teach in a PYP school educating students to be global citizens and supporting them to develop respect for themselves, others and the world around them.

 Why St John’s?

It is a great privilege and joy to be able to work in an environment as caring and supportive as St John’s Lutheran School. I love sharing the knowledge of my first language and culture with the children. The PYP lets me collaborate with my teaching colleagues, to create learning experiences in German that are authentic, meaningful, and engaging for our diversity of learners.
