Helen’s Aunty lived with her family growing up and has passed on her traditional Aboriginal name onto Helen’s daughter.
Helen has taught indigenous culture units and managed the culture clusters for diploma and certificate III Early Childhood Courses at TAFE. She has consistent positive feedback on her ability to be sensitive to the needs of culturally diverse participants.
Helen has worked with Education Support students who are training as Aboriginal Education Support Workers to support the indigenous students and families in their schools.
