Study education at Griffith
A rewarding teaching career starts here.
Primary school teacher and education graduate Natalie Harris inspired her Year 4 students to get involved in science and technology, setting up the Tech Girls Club at Pacific Pines State Primary School. ‘I volunteered to be one of the school’s first iPad teachers and it showed me the possibilities of integrating technology into teaching.’ Natalie encouraged five of her students to enter the Tech Girls Movement Search for the Next Tech Girl Superhero (SNTGS) competition, which they subsequently won at a State and national level. In 2018, Natalie won the Queensland College of Teachers (QCT), Excellence in Teaching Award. ‘Winning the QCT award is so special and rewarding. You don’t teach for awards but because you love what you do, and to be recognised by your peers is humbling.’

'Griffith has an immersive, real-world focus and it also offers opportunities to grow beyond the degree through programs like the Griffith Honours College. I’m leaving Griffith with a degree, but also a network of colleagues and mentors that will continue to shape my identity for years to come.'
