Age group: Year 0-8, aged 4-12 years old.
Introductory: I am a dedicated, self-motivated, and passionate beginning teacher who just recently completed a Bachelor of Education (specialising in primary teaching) degree in AUT University. My maturity and time as a student teacher has grown tremendously over the past 3 years as I have been producing high standard of work in both theory and practice in University and in placement experiences. I have been with a variety of year levels, with many experiences in the junior, middle, and senior years. I believe it has given me a strong foundation upon which to build my teaching career.
Name: Jessica Khouri
I have a passion for working with children – seeing them develop and grow academically, socially and emotionally. I work hard to provide a caring, positive and supportive learning environment where children can engage in child-centered programmes. I believe the core subjects of literacy and numeracy are the building blocks for learning, creating a pathway for learning in other areas of the curriculum. I am convinced that helping children understand that they can make a positive difference to their own futures by applying learned skills in everyday situations is an important part of their education.
I am confident, hard working, a team player and enjoy working cooperatively with colleagues. An organized and methodical person who pays attention to detail, I am certain that effective communication is vital between teachers and parents.
The relationships I build with your students and colleagues are vital in my teaching practice. This is aided by my excellent communication skills, knowledge and warm, caring manner.
Strategic goal setting is important in teaching and in life; I make it a priority to set short and long-term goals in order to achieve specific objectives in my own teaching practices and for the students in their academic process. This philosophy is integrated into my approach to teaching. I consider myself a highly reflective practitioner, naturally introspective and I think deeply on your own teaching practices.
I am always careful to be on time for appointments and meet deadlines, and take great pride in being honest, responsible, reliable and loyal.
My teaching qualification, personal qualities and traditional work ethic in combination with my empathetic nature make me a valuable asset to any school.

Age group: Year 0-8
I am a dedicated, passionate teacher with a friendly, accessible, professional and approachable style of teaching.
I plan and teach learning experiences to meet students` needs and create a stimulating, attractive, learning environment, where students feel happy to learn and enjoy doing so.
My own interest and passion for learning inspires and motivates my thinking in the classroom, having had an excellent education myself. I am a very well organised teacher, with high expectations and standards of myself and the students I teach. This is well reflected in my classroom culture.
I have a thorough understanding of curriculum and assessment and deliver these with a very high degree of quality and successful experiences. My particular strengths are in Literacy, Science and Social Sciences. I have experience of using the Inquiry learning model and Assessment to learn.(NZ)
I have been a teacher for 15 years but spent the past few years tutoring from year 0-13 at home. What a valuable experience this has been!
I am now eager to return to the classroom. I was a highly regarded teacher in all my positions by colleagues, students and their families.
I believe teaching to be more than a job.
Teaching is a vocation, an investment in our children and our own futures.

Hi, I’m enthusiastic, self-motivated and motivate the students to learn by keeping lessons active, interactive, social and co-operative. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology, English Literature and Home Economics, and a Graduate Diploma in Teaching (Primary) qualification from Massey University. My personal professional goal is to raise student achievement across the curriculum. This is founded on the New Zealand Curriculum, which I pose an in-depth and up to date knowledge in. This has strengthened my teacher self-efficacy, ensuring growth and strengths in literacy, numeracy, visual arts, and inquiry based learning. I have a sound understanding of the Inquiry learning model, The students acquire critical thinking and problem based solving skills as I guide them through their Inquiry learning. Technology can play an important role in raising student achievement; therefore I plan to facilitate students to present their Inquiry Learning as a power point or as a Prezzie presentation. Further, by placing High expectations on the students and by providing an inclusive, positive and safe learning environment, I aspire to support students to succeed. Additionally, I am enthusiastic about visual art and plan on facilitating students to paint murals. I’m currently relieving on the North Shore and follow effective Behaviour management strategies.
