Danielle Spencer

I am a passionate primary school teacher and love discovering the world again with my primary school children. I work at Mitchelton State School. With a long and extensive background in pediatric nursing, I particularly enjoy teaching science and uphold experiential learning as best practice. After completing a Graduate Certificate in Primary Science, I jointly established an extra-curricular science club at my school. My personal research interest is in gender imbalances in the domain of science and effective practices that address this. Whilst I aim to generally promote the discipline of science, a primary aim of mine is to encourage girls’ participation and interest in science activities.
