Lauren Cook can’t remember a time when she didn’t want to teach. From the beginning of her career in 2001, she strove to understand what was at the basis of good teaching and learning.
Lauren spent many of her early years of teaching in brand new schools, where the exploration of best practice was at the forefront. Lauren undertook a variety of leadership roles from curriculum to professional learning to student management. She also joined the Faculty of Education at Deakin University to work with pre-service teachers.
In 2010, Lauren became an Assistant Principal, but missed her role in the classroom. She now wants to focus more on teaching and learning, and contributing to developing professional networks of teachers committed to best practice.
