Winner: Meghan Stacey

Paper title: Great Teaching, Inspired Learning: An analysis of the teacher ‘problem’ in NSW education policy

Meghan Stacey is a PhD candidate supervised by Dr Helen Proctor. Her thesis is titled Early-career teachers' experiences in NSW secondary schools.

Meghan graduated from the University of Sydney with a Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Education (Hons 1) in 2010 before leaving Sydney to take a permanent position as a secondary English and Drama teacher with the Department of Education in rural NSW. Returning to the University in 2014, Meghan is now completing her PhD as well as working as a casual tutor, lecturer and research assistant. Her doctorate is inspired both by her earlier Honours research, also completed under the supervision of Dr Helen Proctor, and by her experiences as an early-career teacher within the NSW schooling system.
