Hi, my name is Carolyn and I am currently the Education Assistant in the Year 1/2 classroom.

I began my exciting and fantastic journey with the Kerry Street community in February 2013. I always wanted to be in education and working here is a fulfilment of that dream. I love working with students because of the opportunity to be part of the amazement and joy that comes from their learning and discovery. 

I believe that learning should incorporate a good balance of play-based exploration in both small and whole-group sessions and that it should also include a sense of safety, community and a big dose of humour.

Hello! I’m Kisani and the Education Assistant currently working two days in the Kindy/Pre-Primary class and three days across the Year 3/4 and Year /5/6 class.

I have been an Education Assistant, Childcare Assistant and In-Home Educator for over a decade now. In that time, I have worked with all age groups from children in Kindergarten through to children in high school, and with many students who have special and additional needs.

I believe I add a calm yet energetic personality to our school and am flexible enough to adapt to any situation that may arise. Throughout the years, I have been fortunate to work closely with many culturally and linguistically diverse families, which helps to shape my cultural competence and appreciation of diversity.

I joined the Kerry Street team in March 2017 and since then have most closely worked with our Principal Melissa Kennedy and Year 4/5/6 Class Teacher Taylah Griffin.

No two days at Kerry Street are ever quite the same which provides for an interesting and fun work life!
