I’m Ashley Azzopardi and I am 26 years old. I am a primary school teacher in Sydney, NSW, Australia.
I have taught Year Five (2013-2014) and I currently teach Year Two.
I have completed a Bachelor of Inclusive Education and Disability Studies (2008-2010) at the Australian Catholic University (ACU). This course has provided me with great insight into the many disabilities people live with and to strongly believe in including students with disabilities into mainstream classrooms and how that can be achieved.
I have also completed a Master of Teaching (Primary) / Graduate Certificate of Religious Education (2011-2012), also at ACU, in order to realise my dream of becoming a primary school teacher.
I have worked (2008-2011) as a casual for The Junction Works Inc. working with people with disabilities, ranging from high support needs to transition to work (TTW). This job has taught me more than I could ever have imagined and I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to meet some great people with disabilities.
I have also tutored a male year 12 student with ADHD and a mild intellectual disability and a female year 6/7 student. I currently tutor 3 students ranging from Year 4 – Year 8.
I have worked as a casual primary school teacher at various schools gaining a lot of experience along the way.
I am the eldest of four and I love my friends and family.
I love food, all things vintage and a good book. You will often find me not too far away from a cup of tea and some biscuits! I also love adding to my collection of books and clothes!
I am a quiet achiever, determined, organised and an eternal optimist. I am very determined and I’m constantly striving to be the best primary school teacher that I can be.
I am passionate about teaching and wellbeing. I believe we can make this world a better place, one good deed at a time. Are you with me? #wecandothis #purpose
