National recognition for Dominic College teacher

Dominic College teacher, Mrs Jane Doyle, is one of only three Tasmanian educators to receive national recognition in the Australian Scholarships Group (ASG) National Excellence in Teaching Awards in October.

Mrs Doyle is one of 60 teachers selected from almost 1,350 nominations submitted across the country to have been honoured this year.

The ASG National Excellence in Teaching Awards are known as the ‘people’s choice’ awards because they are the only national teaching awards where nominations are made by parents, students, and school communities. Mrs Doyle was nominated for the award by the Dominic College Parents & Friends (P&F) group.

P&F President, Mrs Nicola Rayner, said that Mrs Doyle is recognised as a huge asset to Dominic College.

“She has a reputation in our community as a top quality teacher who knows how children learn and engages children in exciting learning processes, and has deeply influenced the way technology has positively supported student learning.”

Dominic College Principal, Ms Beth Gilligan said that Mrs Doyle’s positive ‘can do’ attitude has led to great achievements at the school.

“Jane provides a differentiated approach, varied to the needs of each student. She believes that developing a positive growth mindset is vital, as is developing creative thinking skills to solve problems. In these classes, Jane focuses on a variety of learning styles – auditory, kinaesthetic and visual,” Ms Gilligan said.

The final 12 national award winners will be announced in March 2017, in the categories of leadership and development, innovation and community engagement.
