Current projects
Leadership in Mathematics Education
This study investigates the needs of primary schools for Mathematics leadership and the expectations and aspirations of primary teacher education undergraduate students following the path of specialisation in mathematics. Results from the study will be used to develop a model for Teacher Education Programs that, in response to a recent government initiative, are developing an optional specialisation pathway for students in primary teacher education.
Measuring Stuff
An understanding of the material world and how it measured is basic to scientific understandings and everyday life. The study examines the appropriateness of the mathematical language used in the 'Volume & Capacity’ topic in the NSW primary Mathematics syllabus, and the connections or absence of connections between this topic and the topic of ‘Mass’. Ultimately it could contribute to the development of a conceptual frame to inform the primary Mathematics syllabus and the primary Science and Technology syllabus, enabling primary school teachers to better integrate an understanding attributes of stuff (objects and materials) and the measurement of these attributes within the same problembased learning tasks and projects.

Awards and honours
2012  Faculty of Education and Social Work Excellence in Teaching Award. My students indicated that I helped them to overcome a fear of mathematics and that I cared about their needs.I was also recognised for my creativity in the design of rich learning tasks.
2016  The Vice Chancellor’s Award for Outstanding Teaching.This award was given to the Primary Mathemtics team (Prof J. Bobis, Assoc. Prof. J. Way and mysel) for making a distinctive contribution to the teaching of mathematics in primary schools. We established a specialist mathematics pathway as an option within the B.Ed (Primary) program with an emphasis on developing students’ leadership qualities so graduates passionate about mathematics, are able to inspire other primary school teachers teaching the subject.
