Stoked to have had such a fantastic article published in the Nudgee College 2018 EOY Magazine regarding the success of our first ever Brisbane Creating A Students Program with their Boarder Students 🙌📚📈
After taking an interest in your subject the next step is to know that subject completely.
Subject knowledge is an indicator of the quality of teaching. It will help you bring effectiveness in your class and change the way you teach.
With a strong command on your subject, you will have:
1⃣Factual knowledge about your subject.
2⃣A deep understanding of the theoretical aspects of your subject.
3⃣A conceptual framework for organizing your knowledge.
4⃣Knowledge of the ‘big ideas’ in your subject.
5⃣A range of ‘stories’ about your specialist subject which aids the giving of explanations.
So my students are wondering about hair coverings. Yes I wear wigs and hats and kerchiefs. So I proved it today by showing up to work like this. Why?? Cuz I’m having fun. I like to find the fun in every mitzvah. It’s my engine. Decorating the Sukkah, cooking for Shabbat, singing and dancing to Chanukah music, the Seder and yes even with my head coverings. The fun brings the smiles and with the smiles come the love. Isn’t that the whole point? To bring more love into this world... love of Gd, of our fellow man and love for ourselves.

Last day with the kids today. My last full time class until 2020! Such a weird feeling. Day ended with a few tears when one of my lovelies refused to go home, then his mum gave me this. Pregnancy hormones + end of year = too many tears. New adventures ahead 😍 #teachersofinstagram#aussieteachersofinstagram#iteachtoo
A heartfelt "Thank You" would suffice from my students' families. Just to know that all the work I've put in was appreciated is something that I can only hope to receive at the end of a long, exhausting year. I know that it doesn't always happen.
This year, I've received some lovely verbal and written 'Thank Yous' from both students and families that I will treasure forever.
Some families and students went beyond what I hoped for, however. One of my students gave me this hand painted mini Van Gogh replica that her father painted as a birthday present a few months ago. My student knew I love Van Gogh. I was gobsmacked.
At the end of this school year, the family also gave me this lovely floral arrangement as a gift. My student also made these beautiful origami pieces and drew me an incredible picture that displayed some of the things that the class learnt in art this year, as well as wrote me an incredibly sweet letter. Both mum and dad have even been saying thank you nearly all year to me.
I am just humbled by their kindness and generous spirit. I never thought I'd ever be on the receiving end of something so wonderful.
Niekedy ma mrzí, že som si nespravila takúto fotku z prvej hodiny každej mojej Lemonky, bola by to pekná spomienka pre všetky tri strany😊🍋.
Na fotke môžete vidieť naozaj oduševnené vysvetľovanie slova FLUFFY🤣 a spokojný výraz nášho klienta🤗. Myslím, že Veron so svojou brutálnou anglinou bude ďalšou veľkou pridanou hodnotou Lemonu😊. Priatelia, ešte stále máte niekoľko dní na zapojenie sa do súťaže o 3 darčekové poukazy na trojmesačný skupinový kurz angličtiny v budúcom roku!
A už iba dnes sa môžete prihlásiť na moju zajtrajšiu Jednorazovku za babku, zatiaľ je vás tam málo, tak ak sa dnes neprihlásia ešte aspoň štyria, tak to zruším. Čo som sa netrafila s témou alebo sa vám už nechce pred Vianocami na anglinu?🤷🏽♀️🙄 (A to som ochotná byť v robotke na svoje meniny🥳) Peknú stredu, priatelia! Inak na to, ako husto snežilo celý večer aj v noci, máme na zemi nejako moc sucho😖☹️ Papa,
