TIPIAC Founder & CEO
2016 was when the idea of TIPIAC came to life. I am an Aboriginal teacher who has been in the education system now for over 20 years and wanted to develop a platform for teachers Australia wide to access Indigenous classroom and curriculum resources from P to 6. My aim is to give teachers both resources and confidence through TIPIACs support network to teach indigenous perspectives in all Key Learning areas.
I know how enriching and diverse my culture is and am very passionate about sharing it. I believe that it is vital and unique to Australian teachers and students to be able to learn about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples culture, history and spirituality. That is why I founded TIPIAC.
Graphic Designer, Illustrator & Research Assistant
TIPIAC is a community I am passionate about as I love both sharing and learning about my culture. I am lucky enough to be able to bring to life resources and learnings of the history and culture of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
Undoubtedly my favourite and most memorable experiences come from learning from the elders and translating that into film for our TIPIAC community to use. Being able to share these films Australia wide makes me really proud to be representing my culture.
