Hayley is a secondary school teacher at a regional school in Victoria. After graduating from the University of Melbourne with an Arts degree – and a stint in London – she returned to begin a Master of Teaching (Secondary) at the Melbourne Graduate School of Education. Hayley believes that regional schools have their advantages, "There are a lot more professional development opportunities at a regional school due to smaller numbers and fewer staff wanting to take on leadership roles, and I have taken every opportunity that has come my way."
