Congratulations to Walford Mathematics Teacher, Joanne Maratos, who was recently included in the Sunday Mail feature, Australia’s Best Teachers.

Joanne has been nominated for her impact as a Maths teacher. Joanne described her approach to teaching:

“As a Mathematics teacher I am highly motivated to develop my students’ skills and confidence so they can understand the problem and then be able to find the solution. I find this incredibly rewarding, especially when teaching girls who may have struggled with Mathematics and felt apprehensive about their own abilities. My key strategies to achieving positive outcomes are to break down Mathematical concepts, see each student as an individual learner, tailor my teaching to their strengths, and use interesting and relevant examples. Recently we celebrated Pi Day by using cookies to illustrate the main concepts relating to circles and the visuals really assisted the students’ understanding.”
