Bio:

Prue has been a High School Mathematics teacher for eight years. She graduated from the University of Newcastle in 2013 with a Bachelor of Mathematics and a Bachelor of Education (Secondary).

Prue has taught in several schools in the Hunter region and is currently teaching at St Mary’s Catholic College Gateshead. Prue’s passion is to motivate and inspire her students to see how they can apply their Maths skills to areas beyond the classroom.

This passion has led Prue to involve herself in numerous STEM initiatives within the school setting. Some highlights include:

  • Coaching the St Mary’s Science and Engineering team each year and winning the National title in Tasmania in 2016.
  • Implementing and supporting initiatives such as the HunterWiSE Outreach STEM program with female Year eight students.

Such is Prue’s passion for teaching and engaging students in mathematics that she recently developed an app called Trigit, to encourage students to apply their trigonometry knowledge to applications outside of the classroom.
