A little more about Tabitha…

The Official Line: I am an educator with over 20 years in the classroom teaching Senior Chemistry and Science, and in various leadership roles. I have a myriad of Post Gradulate Diplomas, Certificates and a Masters of Science (Honours). I‘ve spent the last decade in roles that essentially zero in on learning to grow teams and staff. In the last two years I have focused on reseaching the impacts of a learner mindset on leaders and their leadership and on teachers in their learning.

I am the author of two books, the most recent of which was released in 2019 and is written to empower different to make a difference in what we do in our classrooms for our learners.

The Bottom Line: I believe in living and leading into our values - every day. Leaning in when the going gets tough and learning and growing at every opportunity. I have been called a radiant challenger by clients and bring energy and enthusiasm to everything I do.

I’ve been married to Paddy for almost 22 years and we have two amazing kids, Troy and Samantha, and a couple of crazy schnauzers named Jack and Sid.
