Grades one and two

Welcome to year one and two at Wandong Primary School. We are all very excited for the year to come with our very engaged and excited learners. As we have quite a few new teachers in the one/two cohort this year, we thought we would introduce ourselves to our families, school community and everyone who visits our school website.

 

Team A

1/2 B

Hello everyone! My name is Miss Kelsey Batchelder and I am lucky enough to be the teacher of 1/2B! This is my second year teaching at Wandong Primary School, and my second year in 1/2. I am so lucky to be a part of such an amazing and supportive school community. Outside of teaching I love to spend time with my family and friends. I also love shopping, going on road trips and playing with my dog, Peppie! I cannot wait to see all of the fun and exciting things we get up to and learn in grade 1/2 this year!

 

1/2 D

Hello Wandong community! My name is Miss Lisa Dalcam and I am a grade 1/2 teacher. This is my fifth year of teaching and my second year at Wandong Primary School. In my first year of teaching I was fortunate enough to teach in London! Outside of teaching I love to spend time with my family and friends, go camping and head to the beach. Fun fact about me: I skydived out of a helicopter in Switzerland! I am so excited for all the things we are going to get up to this year and cannot wait to watch everyone achieve their learning goals!

 

1/2 E

Hi, my name is Miss Emily Calandra and I have recently joined Wandong Primary School this year in my first year of teaching. I feel very passionate about reading and maths and I enjoy going to the beach or the zoo in my spare time. I am very excited to be a part of the amazing 1/2 teaching team at Wandong and to have the opportunity to work with all our fantastic students. I look forward to having a positive impact on the students’ growth and support them all to achieve their best.

 

 

Team B

1/2 W

Hi, I’m Miss Natasha Welsby. This will be my sixth year teaching and my second year teaching 1/2 at Wandong Primary School. I previously taught at Kunyung Primary School in Mt. Eliza. I absolutely love my job. When I am not teaching I enjoy coffee with friends, spending time with my family and reading. I also have two rabbits, Basil and Bonnie. I am so excited to get this year started, as this will be a fantastic one for all of us!

 

1/2 K

Hello everyone! My name is Miss Sunalica Kumar and this is my first year as a teacher, which is quite exciting. This year I have been blessed with a grade 1/2 class and feel very fortunate and happy to be the teacher of 1/2K! I also feel very lucky to be teaching alongside such a supportive team of teachers and staff at Wandong Primary School who have been so helpful in getting me settled into a new school. Outside of school, I love to go on travelling adventures, spending time with my family and friends and eating lots of chocolate! I am looking forward to a fun year ahead and all the great things we will achieve this year with my little 1/2 munchkins!

 

1/2 Y

Hi everyone! My name is Mrs Kate Crawford and I am lucky enough to be sharing grade 1/2Y with Mrs Cassandra Langdon. I started my teaching career at Wandong Primary School in 2010, teaching in years 3-6, before heading off to start a family. I am currently a mum to two little girls aged 5 and 1. I am so excited to be back this year and to be part of such an amazing team in 1/2! When I’m not teaching, I love spending time with my family, reading, taking dance classes and going on new adventures with my girls. I can’t wait to see what this year has in store for my beautiful grade, myself and Mrs Langdon.

 

Hello my name is Mrs Cassandra Langdon and I am sharing 1/2Y with Mrs Crawford. I started at Wandong P.S in 2006 and have watched the school grow! I have had a few years off with my two beautiful daughters and I am looking forward on embarking on my next chapter in life. My passion in teaching is to ensure all children enjoy coming to school and they are comfortable, safe and receive a holistic education. Outside of school I enjoy quality family time and the odd sing along to “Human Nature” on a road trip to the beach!!

 

1/2 Z

Hello parents, families and friends. My name is Mrs Sheree Billen and I am the classroom teacher for 1/2Z this year. I feel so fortunate to be teaching this beautiful class during my first year at Wandong Primary School. I have two sons of my own, aged 12 and 14, and they are responsible for my love of AFL (go Pies!!). Apart from footy, I love spending time with my family and my two border collies. I am excited for the year ahead here at Wandong and in particular, in 1/2Z!

 

We are looking forward to a great 2019!

Warm regards,

Kelsey Batchelder, Lisa Dalcam, Emily Calandra, Natasha Welsby, Sunalica Kumar, Kate Crawford, Cassandra Langdon and Sheree Billen.
