Savannah is new to Rose Park PS and is teaching the year 4A class. She has a Primary Middle Education degree and has completed work placements in a variety of teaching settings including metropolitan, APY lands and overseas, namely in Vietnam teaching English students from ages 5 to 50 years. She spent time teaching in remote Indigenous communities and working with students with English as an additional language. These placements have re-ignited her passion for EALD learning which is reflective of some of our students and families in the RPPS community.
Savannah promotes Literacy and Numeracy practices and supporting student wellbeing. Savannah strongly believes that wellbeing is interwoven with the academic and social and personal development of all children’s education. Having a safe and engaging classroom and school environment enables every student to flourish and grow. Adapting to changes while enjoying the journey of growing up with its highs and lows is how Savannah hopes to support all students to learn and grow.

Ida was born in Adelaide and her family is of Italian origin. She has a Bachelor of Arts Degree (majoring in English and Italian) and Masters in Teaching (Junior and Primary). She worked at various places which has helped her to bring a wealth of experience to the classroom.
Over the past 11 years, Ida has taught a range of roles (Italian, French, Drama) as well as classroom teacher for Grades 2, 3 and 4. She taught in an International School of Siena, Italy, where she fell in love with the IB Educational philosophy and visited the Loris Malaguzzi International Centre in Reggio Emilia. These experiences strengthened her professional skills in inquiry-based learning and in nurturing and developing agentic, open-minded global citizens who are curious and respectful. This has also inspired Ida to take on further study – Graduate Certificate in International Education (IB).
Ida creates a nurturing, inclusive and supportive environment and creates an engaging classroom that allows students to be courageous in their learning while challenging them to achieve their personal best. Ida looks forward to continuing to collaborate with students, staff, families, and the Rose Park community.
