The teachers in Neighbourhood 1

Jess 1/2A

I have been teaching at PHPS for the last 4 years. I grew up in the country and I love returning back to home to spend time with my family, go on adventures and enjoy the great outdoors. I have two dogs, Charlie and Freddie that I like to take on all sorts of fun adventures. I love to create costume for events such as Book Week. I am passionate about learning alongside children and helping them reach their full potential.

Matilda 1A

This is my fourth year teaching here at PHPS, and after three years in the 3/4 neighbourhood, I am excited to be in the very special red brick building working with the 1/2’s this year. I love to travel (when we can) and when I’m not at school you’ll find me exploring the country hiking and swimming. I live in Coburg with my gorgeous cat Griz who often get involved in planning and research for learning. I am passionate about stories, reading and afternoon dance parties and making sure everyone feels connected to our neighbourhood and school community.

Erin 2A

I recently graduated after completing my final placement at Princes Hill with the 5/6’s. I’m so happy to be back at PHPS as part of the amazing 1/2 neighbourhood. I love spending my time outside – whether I’m having a yummy picnic in the park, going on a hike, or swimming at the beach. Otherwise, you’ll find me inside with a good book, a cup of tea and my mischievous cat, Kahlo. I’m passionate about fostering meaningful relationships with students to enhance their learning experience and to create positive and inspiring learning environments.
