Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. – Nelson Mandela
My name is Jill Palermo and I am currently teaching Prep at a Catholic Primary School in Victoria, Australia.
I am not ashamed to say that I am quite particular about what I do and create. I try to embrace my inner ‘perfectionist’, however am careful not to let it control me and my teaching. I believe that organisation, collaboration and dedication are three essential traits for educators.
I have a great personal passion for learning which fuels my interest in Education. As both an educator and a life-long learner, I am hopeful that this blog will help me to connect with others in order to discuss pedagogy and to share strategies and practical ideas for the classroom.
2018 will be my 12th year of teaching. This will be my first year teaching Prep (aka Foundation Level) and I am re-energised by this opportunity. Previously, I have taught Year 1/2 for three years and Year 3/4 for eight years. I also held the position of Religious Education Leader for eight years.
All views expressed are my own.
