About Mrs. Jess Melko McCarthy

Connect.Create.Connect.

I am a life long learner who is passionate about teaching. I enjoy experimenting with innovating approaches to the classroom and like to take risks if it leads to increased student engagement.

I am Visual Arts teacher who strongly believes in imparting workplace skills on my students that will enable them in a 21st Century world. Collaboration and connecting students is key component of my curriculum.

Creative thinking and problem solving are skills that can be gained through Visual Arts and I love seeing my students make links between concepts and ideas.

After winning the 2010 NSW Ministers Quality Teaching Award, my confidence in my expertise as a teacher has been rewarded and am really proud of my achievements. I completed my Masters of Cross-Disciplinary in Art and Design in 2011.

In 2013 I was excited to present at ISTE, not only a small workshop, but I also hung out and presented at the Edmodo booth.
