"My Masters of Educational Studies at UQ was one of the highlights over the course of my career. I was blessed to have the most amazing lecturers, who brought their passion and experience to the diverse group of educators in the room. In addition, I learnt from the intense and interesting discussions that took place amongst the students. I learnt to write, to develop my opinions and engage in stimulating research projects. Some of these projects involved me interviewing teachers and deputies in schools about their initiatives, implementation of curriculum and transformational leadership practices."
