After graduating from the University of Tasmania with a Bachelor of Education, Jo worked in a range of schools teaching from Kinder to Year 8. She began working at Fahan in 2004 as the Year 4 teacher.

After returning from maternity leave in 2015, Jo took on the role of Guided Learning teacher, a role she enjoys greatly. Having done postgraduate study in literacy and learning difficulties, she is particularly interested in how children learn to read and the teaching practices which best support the acquisition of literacy for all children.

“As the mother of three little boys, I’m keenly aware of the importance of fostering a love of learning in the early years of schooling. Fahan is the perfect place to do this.”

Jo is a Fahan Alumni and has many fond memories of her school life, in particular the kind and nurturing teaching staff and the many lifelong friends made.
