“We’ve been able to work in unison in the classroom, to explicitly build specific content knowledge and the pedagogy required, so that the early career teacher is able to independently and effectively take over those classes from now on.”
Hear from Natalie on team teaching
Hear from Melinda talk about team teaching with Natalie
Natalie has time out of the classroom to work on leading improvement, innovation and change as she is working on the implementation of a whole-school initiative. St Johns is introducing an evidence-based improvement plan that will significantly reform the college’s approach to reporting and assessment.
Natalie has a key role in this process, communicating the need for change, consulting widely, and building knowledge and understanding of meaningful and reliable assessment and reporting processes.
She coordinates and mentors a number of Professional Learning Community (PLC) leaders within the school, guiding and supporting them to implement the new approach. Natalie also uses these sessions to collaborate with colleagues to develop ways to monitor and report on student progress.
