Role at TSSM:

Brigitte's expertise is VCE English. Her passion for teaching English is the reason why so many of her students excel in the subject at the year 12 level.

Teaching Philosophy:

Educators are responsible for the next generation.

Educators need to equip students with the skills to understand and make informed judgements about the world around them for the present and for their future. Brigitte strives to create a classroom atmosphere and present a curriculum that prepares her students to build and participate in the real world, a world full of tragedy and failure but also one full of purpose and hope. Brigitte assists her students in developing the necessary skills and knowledge to critique and survive in their world. She is passionate about giving students ample opportunities to explore multimodal texts across the curriculum. She also nurtures a strong sense of compassion and equity.

Brigitte believes willing minds are fostered through an environment based on inquiry, inquisition and wonder where students feel free to ask questions and solutions are plausible through conversation, working out and teacher peer relationships.

Brigitte believes we should allow students to have a voice, to find their own path in the world of literature. She believes that we need to equip our students with the knowledge and empower them with the capacity for being highly skilled language users, by pushing them to exceed their limits.
