Jo lives at Moriac on half an acre with her husband Ian and two children, Isaac and Chelsea. When Jo is not at kinder she likes to walk her dogs (Cherry and Blaze) around Moriac or on the beach at Torquay. She also enjoys keeping fit boxing with her son Isaac, reading, music, shopping, watching movies and enjoys a good coffee and some cake. Her favourite part of working as a kinder teacher is getting to know each child and planning to extend their learning, meeting new families and watching the children make friends and grow in confidence. Jo hopes the children at the Birregurra Preschool make life long memories and friendships, but most of all enjoy the year and have fun!
Mrs Simpson has lived in Birregurra for 30 years and worked at the preschool for 17 years. She has two grown up children Tilly and Jack. In her spare time Jodie likes gardening, mountain bike riding and spending time with family and friends. She can’t pick a favourite aspect of the Birregurra preschool, according to Jodie it’s all wonderful: indoors, outdoors, the children and their families and the program.
