Simone Gawel

Program Facilitator

Hi, I’m Simone and I am an SSO at Westbourne Park Primary School.  I work with all the higher need students, predominantly children with Autism/Asperger’s. I have been a Facilitator at the Gold Foundation since 2013.

Here is what my peers think of me;

‘Simone is a warm, caring and energetic person. She has a wonderful ability to connect with students of multiple ages.  Simone makes a significant impact on her students and their families’.

Simone is highly reflective of her teaching, learning and relationship practice, continually expanding her repertoire of highly effective teaching strategies.  Simone is a special kind of educator, much loved by her colleagues and especially the students in her care.  She impacts their lives in a profound way through building and maintaining strong relationships based on mutual respect and desire to succeed.

‘Simone is a highly passionate professional and engaging educator.  Simone’s strength lies in her abilities to quickly establish and maintain positive relationships with students, staff and parents alike’.
