Mindy Paluch

English /Humanities Teacher and Presenter

Mindy has been teaching in Secondary schools for 15 years and held various leadership positions, including Head of Department.  In addition, she has worked in adult education and has written articles for Education HQ online magazine. She believes in finding innovative ways to encourage students to create quality written texts and uses energetic and unique methods to engage students.

Working with students from Year 7 – 12 and as a mum of four children, has contributed to her belief in understanding ‘the whole student’ not simply as she/he presents in your classroom. Mindy is passionate about ensuring that teachers take this into account in order to achieve academic success. She also has a particular interest in student engagement and maintaining motivation in an era when youth find it increasingly challenging to focus for extended periods of time.
