Short bio

Heather is currently Leader of Learning: English at McCarthy Catholic College and has taught English and History for over twenty years. She has introduced a number of learning opportunities for students to construct films and documentaries to explore their understanding of life and the world. She is passionate about students developing the creative skills and knowledge to tell their stories. Heather is excited by the challenge of a curriculum that critiques and values the potential of documentary, film and digital forms, and considers empowering students to not only be critical consumers but considered constructors of these forms to be a delightful privilege.
