Our Classroom Teachers
Ms Sam Taylor: Prep
Ms Taylor's passion for early years teaching burns as bright today as when she began 30 years ago. She credits her lively enthusiasm to her love of video games and building lego, but it is clear it is her infectious love of teaching and her desire to be continuously at the top of her game that keeps her coming back. When the Preps enter her classroom they are in for a treat of active, playful and engaging activities that not only secure a deep love of learning, but also foster independence, build confidence and cultivate curiousity.
Ms Helen Gilmour: Year 1
Proficient in Spanish, Ms Gilmour's career has taken her from Victoria to Columbia, before settling back in sunny Brisbane, yet it is in the community of Our Lady of Fatima that she feels she has found her place. With the firm belief that education should not be confined to the classroom, Ms Gilmour's class is often seen enjoying the sunshine or getting their hands dirty in OLOF's community garden.
Mrs Suzanne Chambers: Year 2
For Mrs Chambers it is seeing the spark of understanding flicker and grow in students that keeps her teaching. Her class are often engaged in hands on Science experiments or Mathematics games. Mrs Chambers is most passionate though about early literacy and enjoys reading all genres from the classics to modern literature.
Mr Bill Green: Year 3
After coaching his son's Rugby and Cricket teams, Mr Green decided that being a full-time educator was his vocation. A banker in a previous life, Mr Green is here to earnestly make a difference in the lives of the students he teaches. His classroom is full of encouragement, learning challenges and a lot of laughs. At special occasions, you may find Mr Green behind a guitar and microphone, sharing his love for playing and listening to music.
Miss Stephanie Renner: Year 4
It was Miss Renner's very own experiences in Primary School that gave life to her own love of learning, and now she is proud to be sharing that love with the students at Our Lady of Fatima. Providing an environment where children feel safe, heard and inspired is Miss Renner's number one goal in the Year Four classroom, and the foundation in which all of her lessons are built upon.
Miss Sarah Tramacchi: Year 5
Miss Tramacchi has been part of OLOF's growth and journey for over two decades, privileged at times to teach every child of some families. With a talent for art, a knack for technology and a passion for science, the Year 5 classroom is often filled with stimulating hands-on projects. Through these projects Miss Tramacchi aims to not only transfer knowledge, but also foster a deep passion for learning.
Ms Jane Beckwith: Year 6
Ms Beckwith's wealth of experience stems from her previous careers in the New Zealand Defence Force and both primary and high school teaching. Ms Beckwith has life-long commitment, trust and faith in Catholic Christian beliefs, and respect for all. With a passion for fostering self-reliance and a knack for building confidence and perseverance, Ms Beckwith sees her students flourish into independent and curious learners.
