Miss Jordan and Mrs Morris have both been teaching at Leopold Primary School for eight years.
2010 was the first year that they team taught. It was a great year and they enjoyed collaborating with many classes around the world.
During 2010, Mrs Morris and Miss Jordan were featured in The Age newspaper and Runner’s World Magazine for their use of technology. They were nominated for the 2010 Edublog Awards and won awards in the Sprockets and Flares multimedia competition.
