Jess Howe - Woori Yallock
Welcome to another episode of the Education Enclave podcast. In this episode I’m joined by Jess Howe who is the Foundation Team Leader at Woori Yallock Primary School. Jess is an amazing educator, who I’ve had the privilege of observing from the start of her career, right up until now. If you’re an Early Years teacher this is a must listen. We discuss the Foundation classroom, high expectations, coaching, phonics, writing, spelling and communities of practice. I’m already thinking about a round 2 with Jess. If you have any questions for Jess, or myself, send them through, and we will organise another catch up. I hope you enjoy the episode as much as I did!

This is Episode 2 of Education Enclave. In this episode I’m joined by Erin Beissel, who in 2021 was awarded Teacher of the Year by the Victorian Department of Education and Training. Erin is currently on maternity leave from Clarinda PS, but we managed to squeeze in our chat while Audrey was having a nap. We discuss professional learning, leadership, literacy and all things education. I hope you enjoy the episode as much as I did.
