Students skip into the classroom in the morning at Samford State School, excited and eager to learn from their teacher Naomi Madigan.
The outstanding educator knows learning comes down to motivating and exciting her students to help create differentiated, targeted teaching, which considers students’ assessment data, interests and strengths.
“Naomi’s students skip into her classroom and cannot wait to enter her positive learning environment,” Deanne says.
The primary school teacher uses data to make sure students progress each year and encourages them to make sure they embrace their development.
“Learning goals are collaboratively determined, and to witness young students committed to improving their learning focussed on individual targets and achievement is impressive,” Deanne says.
