Kestrels Teacher Aide
Amy has been a BiS Teacher Aide since 2017. She is a pre-service teacher who is nearing completion of a Bachelor of Education, with an Early Years specialisation. She also holds qualifications in Human Resource Management and Screen Production.
She previously ran a child and family photography business and has 10 years office management experience. Although she originally began a teaching degree at 18, it was through her journey as a parent to her three boys, that her interest in education and child development became significant and meaningful.
Her commitment to child-centred education led her to BiS and subsequently inspired her to co-found REAL Schools Inc., an organisation working towards developing a progressive secondary schooling option in Brisbane. She believes education must work to cultivate children’s positive learning dispositions such as: curiosity, creativity and persistence, alongside the development of essential skills and knowledge needed for becoming involved contributors in their community.
