SHORT BIO

Eli Simpson has taught English in New South Wales for the past seven years. During this time, she has taught both senior and junior classes to appreciate and value film as an enriching and engaging textual form. She holds a Master of Letters (Literature), in which she explored the representation of female sexuality in contemporary literature. She is a passionate advocate for the exploration of film in the English classroom, as it so aptly captures students’ imagination while also having the potential to subvert their expectations.
