Andrea teaches in the Master of Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), Master of Modern Languages Education and the Master of Teaching Secondary Internship program. She has combined working in applied linguistics and education at MGSE and Monash University with consultancy work.
Andrea trained as a secondary English and languages teacher but has spent more time working in primary schools, most recently as curriculum coordinator in a Jewish primary school.
She works within a qualitative framework, and her research interests focus on languages and literacy (L1 and L2), specifically improving pedagogy, programs and participation. In 2017 she hopes to investigate the lived experience of primary school language teachers and report on a successful content and language integrated learning (CLIL) program.
