We all re­mem­ber a teacher who changed our life, yet teach­ers are leav­ing the pro­fes­sion in droves. haven mag­a­zine wants to cel­e­brate the amaz­ing work that teach­ers do and so put to­gether ‘haven’s favourite teacher com­pe­ti­tion’. We have al­ready re­ceived so many nom­i­na­tions – it’s go­ing to be hard to pick a win­ner. Luck­ily though we have na­tional par­ent­ing blog­ger Sam Jockel, oth­er­wise known as School Mum, on board to help us pick the win­ner. “As a par­ent to three chil­dren, I find it ex­haust­ing look­ing after them most of the time, even when hubby is around to help out. I can't imag­ine how chal­leng­ing it would be at times to have a class of up to 30 kids to not only look after but also teach stuff too!” Sam says. “If you ask me, teach­ers are su­per­heroes and I take my hat off to them for all the time and sup­port they give to our kids day in and day out.” haven mag­a­zine pub­lisher Kee­ley O’Con­nor says teach­ers change the world every sin­gle day, yet they never re­ceive enough of a thanks for the amaz­ing, yet very stress­ful, work they do. “Teach­ers re­ally have one of the most im­por­tant jobs in the world,” Kee­ley says. “I still re­mem­ber the teach­ers who made a real dif­fer­ence in my life from when I was in school. What I learned from them has stuck with me for­ever.” One lo­cal teacher mak­ing a world of dif­fer­ence to hun­dreds, if not thou­sands, of lo­cal kids is Jeanette McDon­ald who has been a teacher for more than 30 years. She is cur­rently an English teacher and head of se­nior school­ing at Robina State High School, where she has worked since it opened 21 years ago.
