As a high school teacher since 1991, my experience with teenagers has always been exciting and energising … and one that I would not change for anything!
The first fifteen years of my teaching career were spent as an English teacher at Merrylands High school followed by a period as Head Teacher English at Killara High School. After four years at Killara, I moved on to the Deputy Principal role at Turramurra High School and then the Principal role soon after.
As the Principal of Turramurra High School, I am very privileged to be leading a school of amazing students and empowered staff in a very strong and supportive community.
Teaching in a variety of settings and in a variety of roles has allowed me to realise how critical it is that we shift our thinking in education. I am committed to seeking fundamental changes to our current system of teaching and learning to better meet the future learning needs of our students.

As schools implement the new Australian Curriculum across learning areas, we are seeing how a stronger focus on inquiry is providing opportunities for schools to move beyond the ‘what’ of teaching to explore the ‘how’ of teaching. This has resulted in some schools reinventing the way they design learning spaces, rethinking the structure of the school day and academic structure of what constitutes a class, and developing personalised learning pathways for individual students within and beyond the school.
These schools are transforming what we have traditionally experienced as school education. They are future focused, and rewriting the rules of engagement in schooling. Students are engaging with issues that will directly affect their future, such as sustainability, globalisation, citizenship, and enterprise. They are developing knowledge, skills, and dispositions to help them cope with what the future may hold. They are designing, creating, and inventing new products and doing things that will help shape their lives as they move into the world of work.
The Summit will consist of a series of presentations that provide perspectives from system leaders, principals, classroom teachers, and teacher librarians.
