All About Me

Jessica O'Neill

Studies

I am currently in my 1st year of university studying a Bachelor of Education (Primary) at the University of Notre Dame at the Fremantle campus.



Background

I came straight from my end of schooling at Emmanuel Catholic College into my course at university, as I was sure that teaching was the correct pathway for me. St Jerome’s in Spearwood was the primary school I attended from pre-primary to grade 7 and then I went on to Emmanuel Catholic College from years 8 to 12.



The subject I am specialising in is theatre studies. As I am a dancer and dance assistant teacher myself, theatre studies is an area of mine that I feel strongly and passionate about and therefore I can give the children within my class the most value. Being an assistant dance teacher at The Dance Collective is an activity that will help me and benefit the school as I have been taught and had experience teaching kids and learning what is the best way to interact with them.






Career Goals

A career goal of mine is to set high standards for the students but achievable ones and to create a safe learning environment for all the students.
