Addy Latisenka currently works at Rose Park Primary school, as a year 5 teacher in room 19. This will be her second year teaching in this year level. During the past 10 years she has worked as a School Service Officer (SSO) at several schools from B-12 supporting students with diverse learning needs. Her academic qualifications include a post graduate in teaching at Charles Darwin University and a Bachelor of Design in Interior Design. In addition, she has also been a tennis coach and personal trainer for five years at a local tennis club.
Addy values differentiated learning in the classroom to ensure that all students with diverse learning needs have the opportunity to access multiple learning pathways. Students are supported and challenged to maximise their full potential, so they become confident, independent and valued members of the community. Her motto is “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”
Brad Schutz is excited to be teaching at Rose Park Primary School in Room 20 this year. This is his first teaching contract which sees him achieve a long-term career goal. Over the last 10 years he has been employed at Burnside Primary School undertaking management roles within After School Sports, SAPSASA, Whole School Sporting events and site Facilities.

In 2018, Brad aims to become a mentor to all students by creating positive relationships, providing sufficient knowledge surrounding social and emotional wellbeing and teaching in a way which promotes student engagement and motivation. Brad will achieve this by creating a safe, happy and organised environment, teaching in a variety of ways to cater for the different learning styles of each student. This will be supported by his warm and approachable manner.
