Spotlight on Learning – Jordan Green

Jordan Green may be one of the newest Science teachers on the Senior Campus, but he is also a young man with many strings to his bow. An exemplary student at Taroona High School, Hobart College and University of Tasmania, he has received;

2013: The Bruce Wall Springboard to Higher Education Bursary, Outstanding Contribution to Music Award

2015: Old Hobartian Centenary Scholarship, Principal’s Award Tertiary Entrance Score of 100 or above

2018 – Placed on the Dean’s Honour Roll for the College of Sciences and Engineering for study in the degree Bachelor of Science (Catalyst Program)

Mr Green completed his Bachelor of Science (Catalyst Program) majoring in Applied Mathematics and Physics at the University of Tasmania and then completed a Master of Teaching (Secondary): specialising in 7-12 Mathematics and Science.

Jordan brings vitality and enthusiasm into his science lessons as he was inspired by his own teachers during schooling and then on into his degree and prac placements. Seeing “students go from functionally disengaged, to highly engaged and leading the class” has been a great motivation as he heads into his time at Launceston Grammar.

Outside of school, Mr Green’s energetic approach continues. Most weekends he can be found training or competing in multi-sports events, one of the most famous in Tasmania being the Freycinet Challenge. Jordan is a Flatwater Instructor – Kayak ⎯ Whitewater Rescue Level 2 – Kayak. He coached Men’s Artistic Gymnastics Program (Competitive and Recreational classes) in Kingborough for over nine years.

We are very fortunate to have such a passionate and inspiring young Tasmanian teacher in our Science team. Welcome to Launceston Grammar Mr Green.
