Big tick for teacher

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Near You -

KENS­ING­TON Pri­mary School Year 2 teacher Shan­non May has been recog­nised for her ded­i­ca­tion. She was one of 10 teach­ers from across the coun­try who were recog­nised this month through the Of­ficeMax A Day Made Bet­ter pro­gram, which recog­nises the con­tri­bu­tion of teach­ers who go above and beyond the call of duty for their stu­dents. Ms May fur­thers her teach­ing com­mit­ments by get­ting to know each child per­son­ally and teach­ing with their in­di­vid­ual strengths and weak­nesses in mind. With her ap­proach to ed­u­ca­tion, Ms May has de­vel­oped a class of chil­dren who are en­joy­ing school and class­room learn­ing. Ms May said she was pleased to be recog­nised. “Sud­denly it all made sense with the pho­tog­ra­pher be­ing in the room and I found it so hard to wipe the smile off my face,” she said. “As teach­ers we just do the best we can ev­ery day be­cause we adore our stu­dents and are keen to make a dif­fer­ence. “The in­ter­nal recog­ni­tion teach­ers re­ceive is re­ally re­ward­ing, but ex­ter­nal recog­ni­tion is the ic­ing on the cake.”
