EXCELLENCE IN TEACHING AND LEARNING

Ms Shauna Reynolds

Since being a part of our school Shauna has created a togetherness through music. Her organisation and planning of performances such as One Big Voice have been amazing to watch and exciting for all involved.

Our mood after the assembly song has often carried us through the day with a smile and we appreciate how much time and effort it must take to choreograph and teach all the students these songs.

Shauna has had a large impact on the children, they look forward to her class and often comment that they can approach her about any problem or issue they might have and always takes time to listen, making them feel safe and heard.

Shauna not only teaches one class but is involved in the teaching of nearly every child at Edney Primary School.

Not only does Shauna have a passion for teaching music she has taken part in many things around the school such as setting up the new science lab, she is a member of the school board and other committees in the school.
