Prior to her 2006 Flinders appointment Susan worked at Edith Cowan University (2000-2006) leading the development of a Bachelor of Education specifically designed to develop continuity between the early and primary years. Susan’s experience includes teaching and leadership at local, state and national levels in her work as a District Coordinator, School Principal, Curriculum Manager and President of the Junior Primary Principals’ Association of South Australia. Her work as School Principal in a large suburban integrated early childhood program has been researched and documented in research reports including ‘100 Children Go to School’ (1998, Hill et al).
