Never stop learning
Violet Nicola’s role at Beverley Hills is as Education support administrator, assisting teachers across IT support as well as Mathletics, Spellodrome and Reading Eggs. Add to that Mathletics & Reading Eggs Lead Educator!
Originating from South Africa, working at Beverley Hills Primary is a family affair. Her young son attends and both Violet’s parents teach at the school. “We have been so privileged to be able to work together. We all love working together and feel so honoured to provide the best support and education to our small growing community.”
Violet is clear that we never stop learning, oftentimes learning from the children that we teach. She holds utmost respect for her teaching colleagues at school who have been teaching for 20-50 years.
She keeps engagement high by provided staff with term certificates for children who have reached the most points, awarding certificates at assemblies plus a trophy and canteen prizes. Accessing school results, Violet informs colleagues in team planning meetings to help them stream students in the right groups.
Technology is a huge impact in our lives now but I also enjoy that our school still provides the basics of teaching from back in the day. As much as IT is the new thing, having respect for, and learning the basics on handwriting, maths and reading is still a really important part in our school for our children.
She host PDs with colleagues on how best to use the program and also how to set tasks for their students, demonstrating on iPhone or tablet device for students needing extra support.
Violet is also a Mathletics Lead Educator! Read more
