Aaron has worked at Norwest as an educator in OOSH for 7 years and with both a Bachelor of Arts and a Masters of Teaching he now joins our secondary teaching team. Aaron recalls, “In Year 11 I had the opportunity to travel to Vanuatu on a short term school mission trip. We had the privilege of getting in the classrooms alongside younger students and talking about various school subjects, sports, hobbies, and our faith. I knew then that a career as a teacher would allow me to help shape and influence the next generation both academically and spiritually, and that education can provide people with a way to escape hardship and poverty.”
Teaching excites Aaron because of the “opportunity to help young people explore and gain a deeper understanding of the intricacies of the world around them, and to help them apply that knowledge in practical ways.” Aaron is also passionate about the incorporation of new technologies, collaborative learning and critical thinking.
Aaron loves working at Norwest and says “staff are motivated in providing students with the best possible opportunity to achieve highly and extend themselves across a range of areas. The learning environment goes beyond just academics. Young people are being shaped to be lifelong learners and positive contributors in their local and global communities.”
In his spare time Aaron enjoys travelling and playing sport. Aaron loves music and playing the guitar and uses this gift in his church, Kings Park Community Church, where he also serves in a number of other ways including youth group, Bible studies and camps.
