Role: Inclusive Education Teacher
A little about you: I was born in Western Queensland in Mitchell, but as the daughter of a soldier, I have lived in several states/places in Australia. I have one child, a son named Callum. I have many pets - dogs, cats, chooks & fish. I love travelling, scrapbook and card making and photography.
Favourite sport: I don't have one - not sporty at all!
Favourite TV show: Big Bang Theory
Favourite food: lasagna, basically anything with pasta in it, pumpkin
What do you love about your job: The children. Watching a child, who is having difficulty in their learning for whatever reason, make progress. When a child has their 'Aha' moment and things begin to fall into place for them, it is very satisfying to know that you have been a small part in helping build that confidence and success. All forward progress is great success for the children.
Hello my name is Janelle Farlow and I have recently begun working in the Padua Office. I feel very privileged to be given the opportunity to be a part of what I had already thought was a fantastic school. I have two children, Matthew is currently completing Year 9 and Miss Emily is completing Year 5. I have a wonderful husband who in October this year we will be celebrating 20 years of marriage.
Some of my favourite things to do at my leisure is Shopping, catching up with family and friends. Another hobby I love is water Skiing but currently with our water supply being so low we have been unable to do this.
What do I love about my job? I love being able to help out the children during lunchtimes if required. Supporting my other co-workers. Let’s face it anyone that knows me, understands I am always available for a chat.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every person that has welcomed me into my new role.
Role: grade four teacher
A little about you: I have a baby, Paige and a cat named Lilly. I was born in Innisfail, but moved to
Townsville when I was 9. I love living in a city that has it all! Outside living and country feel but some
perks of big city living too. My husband works away and we are looking forward to heading overseas
at Christmas time for a big holiday!
Favourite things to do: I love playing with my bub and spending time with my husband. I really enjoy
having people over for a weekend BBQ and getting together with friends and family.
Favourite food: chocolate, anything pasta, and all home baked goodies.
What do you love about your job: I love working with children and teaching them new things. I love
when children find something interesting or fascinating and a have a light bulb moment. That is part
of the reason why I became a teacher, I love being a part of children learning something new.
