Angela is an experienced educator and sustainability practitioner.
She taught economics, business, commerce and mathematics at Newington College – an independent college for boys in Sydney’s inner west and was an HSC Examiner in Economics for the NSW Board of Studies for four years. She spent almost a decade working at Newington College where her passion for the environment, student leadership and engagement programs led her to help establish the college’s Sustainability Council.
She worked as an Associate Lecturer in Economics at the University of Sydney and provided additional one-on-one tuition to students through the Indigenous Tutorial Assistance Scheme (ITAS).
She was subsequently employed by Manly Council as the Climate Change & Sustainability Education Officer. In this role, she worked with residents, local businesses and schools to inform, educate and inspire a greater appreciation for nature. She also strove to foster a deeper sense of personal and collective custodianship for the local areas in which we live, work and play.
Angela now works for Cool Australia and supports teachers in their professional learning. She creates online courses which are accessible to teachers across the country and runs face-to-face workshops in NSW, the ACT and Queensland.
