Mr PEARSON (Essendon) – Today I rise to acknowledge the work of Jess Greenbaum, who is a primary school teacher in my community. I have come to know Jess over a number of years, and she embodies everything that you could ask for in an educator. Her commitment to her vocation is limitless, and she has an extraordinary ability to bring out the very best in her students. Jess is simply the gold standard of teaching, and on behalf of my community I can only say thank you.
