Teaching graduate Brooke Zis is excited to have returned to Bruce Rock District High School in a new capacity.

“It is a surreal experience to enter Bruce Rock District High School as a teacher and no longer as a student,” Ms Zis said.

“I have had a passion for learning ever since I was a primary school-aged student at Bruce Rock District High School. By becoming a teacher, I hope to instil this love of learning in every student I teach.”

Ms Zis attended the school in Years 3-6

The school accommodates students from kindergarten to year 10.

Filling teaching positions in regional and remote WA schools can be challenging.

In 2022 the State Government introduced a raft of initiatives and incentives to help boost teacher numbers.

Ms Zis is eager to take on her new role and contribute to the fabric of the East Wheatbelt town.

“I knew that when I finished my teaching degree I wanted to begin my teaching career in the Wheatbelt, so that I could become immersed in a vibrant school community and be faced with opportunities that would allow me to grow professionally and personally,” she said.

“I am looking forward to giving back to the Bruce Rock District High School community and broader community that has shaped me into the person I am today.”
