CURRAMBINE teacher Renae Jackson has won two accolades at Curtin University’s recent School of Education awards.

The Ashdale Secondary College science teacher won the WA Secondary School Executives Association award for demonstrating the highest level of academic performance and teaching competency.

She was also presented with the Mathematics Association of WA’s Pre-Service Teacher award recognising her outstanding grade in secondary maths and for making a significant contribution to maths education.

Ms Jackson completed a Bachelor of Secondary Education last year, specialising in science and maths.

“I am very proud to have received the awards and to see all my hard work has paid off,” she said.

“Curtin University has an excellent teaching program, resources and lecturers, and I could not have got to where I am today without their support.

“I am looking forward to a very rewarding career in secondary education.”

Iluka resident Michelle Adey was another winner on the night, receiving the Open University Australia Award in Education for excellent overall academic performance in her Bachelor of Early Childhood Education degree.
