Inspiring active learners and leaders who make a difference

Caitlin Blackwell

Year 1 & 2  Team Leader, Room 20

My name is Caitlin Blackwell, and I will be teaching Year 2 students in Room 20. I am also the Team Leader for the Year 0-2 team.

I enjoy spending time with my family and the various dogs we have. I love travelling and have been to a number of countries. Europe is next on my bucket list. I became engaged this year, and am busy wedding planning for 2025.

In my time teaching at various primary schools on the North Shore, I have taught from Years 2-6. I particularly enjoy teaching literacy, and I am excited about being a part of the Better Start Literacy approach to teaching reading that Pinehill School has been embarking on over the past two years. I also enjoy exploring the visual arts and science with my learners. My favourite part of teaching is the fact that I am always learning alongside the children and there is always room for growth. 

During my three years at Pinehill School, I have enjoyed the enthusiasm and eagerness for learning the children at our school possess. It is a pleasure to teach children with such positive attitudes and to watch them grow. It is also wonderful to be a part of a community that is so involved in their children’s learning journey. I am so excited to get to know you and your families next year.
