EDUCATION INNOVATOR

“I’d like to see Australia celebrating not only scholastic achievement, but celebrating unique skills and expertise.”

“When you’ve been in the education sector for your entire career, it’s easy to get caught in an educators bubble. Last year, s p a c e really helped me to get an external point of view and establish a network that I could bounce ideas off.

Since then, our school has been participating in a state government initiative to make education more relevant by encouraging our students to work collaboratively, identify problems worth solving and adopt an entrepreneurial mindset.

Successful startups don’t typically begin with a great business idea. Instead, the catalyst is often a passion for solving an issue which over time turns into a product or service.

By giving students a range of experiences to engage locally, nationally and with the world, I hope to give them a sense of how they can play a role in solving the problems that we’re collectively facing.

I’d like to see Australia celebrating not only scholastic achievement, but celebrating unique skills and expertise. I’d like to see schools focusing on authentic applications of learning across the disciplines. And I’d personally like to be able to show young people the infinite possibilities that lie ahead of them. I know s p a c e will help with this as it will open my eyes to what’s possible.”
