    Hi, my name is Jodie and I am a year 6 teacher at Australind Primary School, Western Australia.  I have been teaching in primary schools for many years and have always loved the challenging of teaching maths.  At the beginning of this year, I had the opportunity to participate in a pilot programme called Champions of Maths run by Scitech and sponsored by Alcoa. Through this programme, I was introduced to the latest studies in maths and to people such as Jo Boaler, Dan Finkel, Liljedahl and Hattie.

    When I found out about the Virtual Summit I was thrilled to think that I could actually see these people speak, putting a face to the name. I decided to take the opportunity to join the academy so that I could find out more about the latest research, re-watch the videos and upskill myself with the possibility of sharing with my fellow staff members.
