After 30 + years teaching across all year levels, Helen has joined AMSI as a Schools Outreach Project Officer. While Maths has always been her ‘best subject,’ her passion for mathematics education really began when she had the opportunity to work on the NT Numeracy Project with Diane Siemon from RMIT. Moving from Darwin to Victoria in 2005, Helen’s interest and knowledge in the teaching of Maths, particularly at primary level, continued to grow, while working as a Teaching and Learning Coach with the Department of Education and Training. She found working with teachers to build their capacity, particularly in the teaching of Maths, to be extremely rewarding. Working as part of the ‘Choose Maths’ project, where improving participation and engagement in Maths, particularly among girls, are key, will enable Helen to continuing working with teachers and students to enhance their enjoyment of Mathematics.
