Meet Thea

Thea is not only an amazing teacher at Merrylands East Public, she is also one of our wonderful volunteers! Thea did an orientation at the beginning of the year, and when her school duties took up all her available time, she put the work in to get us to her school to work with the cheeky kids you see in the photo just here.

Thea wrote, "The most magic moment in teaching for me personally happens when you witness a total body transformation in a child when they accomplish something academically, make a new discovery or learn a new skill. To see a child smile, their whole body language change and eyes gleam is such a joy. My hope is that students never lose that love of learning throughout their life, and for their eyes to continually sparkle."

With you as their teacher, we have no doubt this will happen Thea!
