I’m Janelle, I am always interested in the many ways of ‘being smart’ and, the connection between a child’s ‘school world and the ‘outside world’.
I’m Issy and I am teaching Year 1/2 in 2024. I love working at a school where we can create a space for students to flourish in their own uniqueness and challenge themselves to grow. Before studying teaching, I studied science, and I love to incorporate my love for the natural world into my teaching. Out of school I’ll most likely be in the ocean, in a forest or crafting. I’m inspired to help create a world where people feel confident, empowered, and curious, and I bring this passion into the classroom every day.
Hi, I’m Serrena Walters and I help students work towards their potential with passion and enthusiasm. I work with the Yr 7/8 students in English and HASS. I also help Grade 1/2 and Grade 5/6 students understand the role Health and Physical Education play in their everyday lives. I have worked in Primary and Secondary education for many years, in both Victoria and Townsville. I have three teenage boys, who are growing up far too quickly. I also enjoy singing, playing the guitar, cooking, drawing, painting, swimming or sitting by the beach.
Hi all, I am a young teacher aide entering my 3rd year of working within this wonderful school. Originally from England, I have a passion for football (soccer), and all else sports related! I enjoy being an active learner alongside our students and love to engage with our school community on a highly energetic level. I believe I am a positive motivator for students and love to encourage them to think in fun and creative ways.
You’ll often find me beating everyone on the handball court!
I’m Bec and I’ve been a teacher aide for 10 years. I love learning and growing with the kids.
I’m Rachel, privileged to fulfil the roles of both a devoted mother to my beautiful daughter and the Business Manager at our school. I look forward to supporting the needs of the team and the community with my finance and business operations knowledge. In my spare time I am continuously seeking ways to improve my physical and mental health
I have worked in Early Childhood and Primary Education for 16 years. Other than my Bachelor of Education, I hold qualifications in Forest School, Behaviour Education, Training and Assessment, and I am also a certified children’s yoga instructor. I have 2 young boys (Harvey and Callum) and enjoy being outside in the garden, camping, fishing and reading. I am a strong advocate for children having a choice and voice within their learning as well as the importance of teaching social and emotional skills.
Hi, I’m Jess. This is my fourth year at Enkindle. I adore spending my days in Wadda Mooli Creek facilitating Forest School sessions for our students. It’s an honour to witness our students build their resilience and develop socially, physically and intellectually in such a holistic way. At Forest School I strive to create a safe, non-judgemental and nurturing environment for students to develop deeper relationships with themselves and one another, allowing for the growth of authentic relationships. I spend most of my life outdoors, hiking, snorkelling, gardening and spending time on Magnetic Island at my tiny home.
Hi, I’m Poppy and I’m a Teacher Aide. I’ve been part of the Enkindle Community for 1.5 years. I love spending my mornings in the creek at Forest School with the children. I love enjoying nature and watching the children explore and grow.
I have been involved with Enkindle since it opened – firstly as a parent of a student and then as a board member. I am a mum to Jason and Travis.
I strongly believe that the current standard schooling system focuses on the wrong things and wanted for my children to be in an education environment that supported and encouraged their individuality, interests and passions and looked at them as a whole and helped me as a parent create solid foundations for them to approach this fast changing world as they grow into adults.
I love the philosophy and values of Enkindle and have chosen to be a board member to help create and shape this amazing village and education alternative for families in Townsville.
