Bill Bryant from Brighton State School is described as ‘hilarious’. He uses humour as an effective and immediate way to get his students’ attention.
He is loved by students and parents alike who view him as an exceptional teacher. He encourages parental support and a sense of community by sharing videos, photos and information to the Seesaw app.
“Bill creates a supportive and safe environment based on respect, inclusiveness and friendship,” principal Courtney Lahey said.
He has been teaching for 36 years and the number of testimonials from parents of his students highlights how respected and valued he is as a teacher.
Bill provides a very positive learning environment, encouraging children to speak up if they don’t understand anything and praising them for their bravery. He also encourages critical thinking and listening by making purposeful mistakes in literacy, grammar and numeracy, which children love to pick him up on.
