Teaching and Learning Expert
Charlie began her teaching career at a private girls’ school in Melbourne, teaching VCE Biology, General Science and Physical Education. During that time, she completed her Master of Education through research examining the barriers teachers face when adopting new pedagogical approaches and the belief systems that inform practice.
A defining moment of her career was the teaching stint she conducted in Vanuatu, where she was able to gain a first hand understanding of the varied contexts, educational goals and parameters that communities across the globe teach within.
Charlie is passionate about the power education has to drive positive change in the world, and believes empowering teachers sits at the heart of this. She believes it is a privilege to apply the learnings from her Master research to support teachers in bettering their practice to improve student outcomes and foster a love of science in younger generations.
