Hello, my name is Elise. I have been a teacher for the past 3.5 years after completing my studies at the University of Tasmania. I have an English Major and a Master of Teaching (Secondary). I have always had a passion for English, and my favourite classes at school involved creative writing. I enjoy helping students boost their literacy skills and I think reading is the most important way to do this. Respect and kindness are my core values as a teacher and I encourage critical thinking in my students.
