Tammy is a Biripi woman from the mid-north coast NSW.  She is the Principal of the Briar Road Public School in New South Wales where she has worked since 2013, and a Stronger Smarter graduate and Ambassador.

Education for our mob, is of the utmost importance.  Making sure that our children are capable, can mix it with the best of them academically is very important but ensuring that it doesn’t come out at the cost of their identity and cultural knowledge.  I believe education will create a stronger future for our people.

Her work is motivated by social justice to ensure that Aboriginal Education is a key strategic direction in her school and community.  In 2018 Briar Road Public School won the inaugural Australian Education Award for Co-Curricular program for their Koori Cultural Program.
