Meet the teachers


Jen is our tech master and maths wiz! She loves creating games and resources and this year is working up a storm in the Learning Commons. Jen has been at PHPS for a while now, teaching many years of children across all the year levels, even some of our current year ones have big siblings taught by Jen! Jen has two big kids of her own who are in high school and a gorgeous puppy, who believe it or not is allergic to grass!


We are lucky enough to have Jake join our year 1 neighbourhood from the beginning of term 3! Jake has joined us from Perth and is settling into Melbourne life and the unique way we learn here at PHPS. He is a maths wiz and is filling our neighbourhood with many new games that are not only fun but support our mathematical thinking. When not at school, Jake enjoys spending time with his partner Georgia and enjoying his two adorable sausage dogs Grace and Margot.


This is Matilda’s 5th year of teaching here at PHPS and is excited to be working with the next excellent group of year 1’s. Matilda’s excited to work in the studio space this year, working with many materials, and finding objects and colours! Matilda’s favourite things are sparkles, dance parties and her cat Griz who is always ready to help by being adorable.
