My name is Anne-Marie and I have worked in schools for over 25 years. I have been a classroom teacher and school leader across a range of schools in Australia. Currently I am a school principal in Brisbane.


I truly believe working in education is an amazing gift and I feel compelled to advocate for our profession. The stories, reflections and products on offer through Hey Hands Up aim to help teachers and school leaders feel supported and inspired in this incredible profession. It's time to raise our hands and say to the world 

'Hey there, I'm an educator!'
