Director of Pedogogy & Curriculum
Ms. Samantha de Moor
Samantha de Moor has worked in education since 2005 in both the public and Catholic education sectors. During these years, she has worked with Year 8 through to Year 12, focusing mainly in the area of Science.
Samantha commenced her time at O’Loughlin Catholic College in 2010, teaching Middle Years Science and Senior Biology. Samantha has also worked as a homeroom teacher in years 8, 9 and 10. Having a positive relationship with the students is very important to her and she strives to enable her students to achieve and enjoy their education. Her passion for Science is displayed in many ways, but more recently via the organisation of the Astronomy Night; she loves to get involved with the Year 8 students during the crocodile dissection.
Samantha became Head of Department - Science in 2013 and has worked with the Science faculty to develop the students’ love and understanding of the subject. As Acting Director of Pedagogy and Curriculum, she intends to work closely with the Heads of Faculties (and other Middle Management), to ensure that students are provided with opportunities to meet their goals and perform at the best of their ability. Samantha wants to ensure that the students see education is cross curricular, and that subjects have an impact on one another and that they are all important in their overarching education. She hopes that she will be able to bring her enthusiasm across into her new role.
