Mr Josh Barker Awarded People's Choice Education Award 2017
People across WA were asked to share messages of appreciation on the Department of Education’s Facebook page as a prelude to the WA Education Awards 2017 and to celebrate World Teachers’ Day today. The public then voted for their favourite message to decide on The People’s Pick.
Here’s how Dean describes Mr Barker:
I would like for once to be the marker
and nominate my maths teacher, Mr Barker.
He is always so happy to help, patient and attentive.
Mr Barker is super inventive!
When we learn new concepts and need extra support
he creates awesome maths videos on YouTube, making sure we all get better marks on our report.
He uses text books, slides and his hand written notes,
which is a good reason for getting your votes.
We get proper revision sheets before every test.
It makes us better students, definitely above the rest.
He is interesting and makes maths fun.
Please vote for Mr Barker, he is the one!
Mr Barker won a $1000 Modern Teaching Aids voucher for the school.
Thank you to everyone who voted for a Melville SHS staff member in the awards this year.
