My name is Elly Martin and I am in my final year of teaching at
Southern Cross University. I am currently undertaking a Bachelor of
Arts/Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood and Primary) and am
very excited to be completing my last Professional Experience in
Juanita Thomsons Stage 3 Opportunity Class.
I will be completing my professional experience from Week 4 to
Week 8 (commencing Monday 16th May, 2016) to which I will
endeavour to meet all of you and introduce myself. As this is my
final professional experience, I will be working very closely to Juanita
and the other stage three teachers to create engaging lessons
suited to each of your individual childs development.
I am currently working at Possum Place Preschool and Early Learning
Centre in Alstonville as an Early Childhood Teacher so have a strong
connection to Alstonville Primary School and the Alstonville
community. Throughout my time on my final professional experience
I hope to further delve myself into the school community and create
connections to the students and families within the class.
If you have any suggestions that you believe I would benefit from,
please return this letter to the class with your ideas.
I am looking forward to meeting you and your child to create
exciting learning experiences.
Kind regards,
Elly Martin.
