Congratulations and good luck wishes are in order for Newton Moore Senior High School science teacher Jade Warrington who has been announced a finalist for the Curtin University Teaching Excellence Award.
The award recognises Jade’s contribution to the school in the role of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) coordinator.
Head of science and engineering Lorraine Ellis said Jade’s passion and innovative approach towards STEM supported the opportunity-driven curriculum offered to students at Newton Moore.
“Her expertise has been a key factor in the success of these programs, in the awarding of the Inaugural Governors School STEM Award in 2015 as well as becoming part of the STEM Teaching Development School innovative partnership.”
Jade said acquiring STEM competencies were critical for future employment, with 40 per cent of jobs and their specific skill sets to become automated within the next 10 to 15 years.
