I began my education career as a teacher, and advanced to the position of Chief Curriculum Co-ordinator of the VEO curriculum team before taking up my current role as school Principal. Undertaking these different work experiences has enabled me to appreciate the true meaning of the teaching spirit. An effective educator understands the needs of the school community, and how to facilitate a successful education for all involved. Middle Kornhill campus prides itself on its close relationships between parents and teachers. This partnership ensures that we are all heading in the same direction; to help our students to be the best they can be.
I believe paying attention to the quality of time spent with the children plays an important part during the children’s growth process. I like to keep close contact with the school community and to work in harmony with them. Let’s work together to support each other so that each child may grasp the opportunity for a happy life.
I am Kelly Peddle, and I come from Nova Scotia, Canada. I have been at Victoria Educational Organisation for many years and am excited to begin another fantastic year at Middle Kornhill. As an educator, I understand the importance of students receiving the necessary skills and tools to meet their full potential. I also understand the importance of learning in a safe, open, and supportive environment so students can become lifelong learners and successful global citizens. I am always growing in my profession. My students and colleagues inspire me daily and give me the confidence to be a risk-taker. I look forward to sharing my experiences with everyone at Middle Kornhill.
From the very first day I became a teacher, I took on the important mission of being a role model for children and enabling them to embark on the journey of learning in a caring, supportive and enriching environment with the educational vision of “life influencing life”. I hope every child will become a risk-taker by taking on challenges, expanding their own little world, and becoming a lifelong learner with an international outlook.
