I currently teach two Year 8 Science classes, two Year 11 Chemistry classes and the Physics component of the Year 10 AC Science program.
My other responsibilities include – Assistant Head of Science, Maughan 1 Mentor Teacher.
I’ve previously taught Year 7-12 Science and Chemistry.
Units I am currently teaching: We are just gearing up for assessment, but have been teaching human body systems to the Year 8s, forces and motion to the Year 10s, and I am about to finish some quantitative chemistry with the Year 11s.
I enjoy teaching boys because I can relate to them well having been a student in a classroom not too long ago.
I’ve been at TSS since 2012 and am now in my 7th year of teaching here.
I came to TSS from Somerset College where I started teaching in 2009.
This year I’m involved in co-curricular at TSS as I am going to coach the 2nd XI football team this year and I am looking forward to the season.
I’m currently reading plenty of little books to my 2 year old son at home!
Career aspect of which I’m proud is moving to TSS as the Assistant Head of Science and also being a former director of the TSS Football Program.
An area of expertise/passion in education is writing skills and innovative e-learning strategies in the classroom
A quote that resonates with me is “The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today.”
My Myers Briggs profile is ESTP.
I’m grateful for the health of my family and the many good friends I have made throughout my life.
I go about maintaining balance and wellbeing by getting out in the surf for a paddle, or out on the course having a hit of golf and heading down to the beach with the family when the weekend hits. I also enjoy getting out on the water when Mr Holtsbaum invites me to give him a fishing lesson.
Something students might not know about me is I grew up in a small town called Pottsville in northern NSW and am a keen NSW Blues supporter. I have also known Mr Pilcher for around 25 years as I grew up with his son’s playing football and cricket together, as well as surfing lots back when we were younger.
