OCEAN Road Primary School teacher Joanne Harman was awarded a Highly Commended Award last night at the inaugural Peel Bright Minds ESTEAM awards.
She also made the finals in the Peel ESTEAM Champion of the Year Awards.
Mrs Harman is a science specialist and was also nominated for the Prime Minister’s Prizes for Science Teaching award in recognition of her passion to bring out the best in her students and develop their inner scientist.
She was also shortlisted for her strong work ethic to create the best environment in which her students can shine.
Complementing these student-centred attributes, Mrs Harman also engages the broader school community in Stem activities.
“I am thrilled and honoured that our school has been recognised for its dedication to inspiring young learners to become innovators, entrepreneurs, critical thinkers and creative problem-solvers,” she said.
“I consider it a privilege to teach, to experience the joy of children’s wonder and to work with such a dedicated staff that recognise the future needs of our students and our changing society.”
