Top secondary teacher inspires excellence

Cecil Andrews Senior High School’s Jeremy Bruse said being an award-winner had opened doors for him and helped him further the cause of high quality teaching.
Mr Bruse is a Level 3 Classroom Teacher – the highest rank a teacher can earn – and coordinates of the Australian Rules Football specialist program at the Seville Grove school.
“A great bunch of Year 8 students joined the program this year, while our existing students continue to work hard to achieve their potential,” Mr Bruse said.
“We have just returned from Melbourne where the students were part of the game at an elite level, with skills and umpiring clinics with top AFL umpire Brett Rosebury, a former student, and visited the MCG and Etihad Stadium for three games.
“The students also went to a performance of Wicked, which was a rich cultural experience. “
In his role, Mr Bruse focuses on changing the lives of students who could be at risk of dropping out of school. Students learn about all aspects of Australian Rules Football, study school subjects, and set and achieve personal goals.
While the AFL program is a major part of Mr Bruse’s job, he also helps colleagues at Cecil Andrews Senior High School and other schools to enhance their teaching skills. In his leadership role he is putting in place a professional learning program for teachers across a group of schools, aligned with national standards.
“Being acknowledged in the WA Education Awards has really helped me in my efforts to support other teachers achieve their goals,” he said.
“I have had many teachers observe my classes and watch how I communicate with students. The most rewarding thing for me is being able to sit in on other teachers’ classes and provide feedback about all the great things they are doing.
“Seeing amazing teachers doing amazing work with students has also allowed me to reflect on my own teaching practices.”
With his prize as WA Premier’s Secondary Teacher of the Year, he is planning to go to Queensland later this year to take part in leadership coaching seminars and visit schools to get further ideas for his classroom and beyond.
“My top tip for keeping students interested in class is to establish positive relationships,” he said.
“The more you understand your students and what makes them tick, the more you will be able to encourage and support them to achieve their goals.”
