WE HAVE ALREADY RECEIVED SO MANY NOMINATIONS AND ENTRIES ARE ABOUT TO CLOSE FOR HAVEN’S FAVOURITE TEACHER COMPETITION. IF YOUR TEACHER ABSOLUTELY ROCKS THEN YOU NEED TO NOMINATE THEM TODAY!
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.
