Emily Daws Blog

Miss Daws has been teaching for six years. Prior to starting at Barwon Heads Primary School, Miss Daws taught at Portarlington Primary School and Middle Indigo Primary School.


What grade levels have you taught? I have taught grades Prep, One and Two over the past six years.

Where did you grow up? I was born in North East Victoria and grew up in a small town called Tarrawingee. I moved to Geelong in 2011 after receiving a job offer at Portarlington Primary School.

What do you like doing in your free time? I enjoy reading, spending time with friends, keeping fit, gardening and cooking.

Do you have any pets? I have a Birman cat called Jasper and a Toy Poodle called Pepe Le Poodle (Pepe for short!)


Did You Know?

* Both of my parents were teachers and my sister is also a teacher. You could say that it’s our family business!

My sister teaches at Lara Primary School

* As a child I spent a lot of time in Ocean Grove because my Grandma lived there.

      Hi Tex,
      It is very funny isn’t it! My cat weighs 5.3 Kg and my dog is only 3.5 Kg. Jasper the cat is definitely the boss!

      Dear Jonsey,
      I see that my sister has fooled you into thinking that she is the ‘funnier’ teacher. This is a common misunderstanding and to be honest it is simply not true. I hope that she has given you some kind of reward for the kind words that you have said about her.
      The real Miss Daws 🙂
      I’ve taught her everything she knows Haha!!

    Hi Dawsy,
    I really liked eating the food but my favourite was the marshmallows.

    Even though this is not about maths it was great fun making our new writers notebooks.
