Warakirri College teacher receives prestigious award
Marjana Mitrovik joined MTC Australia’s Warakirri College in 2008. With a background in Engineering from the former republic of Yugoslavia, Marjana teaches Mathematics to Year 10 and HSC students. At Warakirri some students find this subject challenging however Marjana brings a special quality to the classroom; by making Mathematics both accessible and relevant to everyday life experiences. Fluency in numeracy is being targeted as one of the key challenges in secondary schools, alongside a lack of literacy.
The Pride of Workmanship Award 2015 was presented to Marjana this week at the Smithfield RSL Club by the Rotary Club of Wetherill Park for her services to her profession. A consistent and tireless teacher who goes about her work in a highly professional and dedicated manner. A well-deserved award, Marjana is a highly respected and committed member of the Warakirri teaching team. Congratulations Marjana Mitrovik.
