Deputy Principal; Everleigh State School
I have served the members of South East Region as a Regional Councillor for the past four years. This has afforded me a wonderful opportunity to connect with members across varied settings and contribute to the fantastic work that QASEL does to advocate for students and special educators across Queensland. I am an experienced school LEADER having served as a small school Principal, a primary school HOSES and currently as Deputy Principal. I have supported individuals and teams to transform practice and realise an equitable and inclusive vision that holds students at the heart of every thought, word and action. I appreciate the challenge of continuous LEARNING and consistently strive to adapt and improve in line with contemporary research. An extrovert by nature, it is the LINKING with others to increase educator wellbeing and work satisfaction that invigorates me! I courageously challenging the status quo and look for opportunities to provide feedback and engage in tasks that improve conditions for students, teachers and leaders across the education system.
My contributions to QASEL include:
Member of HOSES sub-committee
SER Regional Councillor
Establishing mentor/mentee partnerships between members
Feedback on policy and procedure reviews
Contribute to the development of QASEL position briefs
Participate in reference groups to address workforce planning
Service award recipient
I would like to continue my contribution to QASEL a Regional Councillor for SE for 2024.
