Lorraine’s teaching experience spans over 30 years in schools. Her passions are engaging students in mathematics and supporting the important work of teachers. Prior to joining Notre Dame, Lorraine was the Principal of a K-12 Independent school and an education consultant.

Recently Lorraine has been involved in the Teaching Teachers for the Future national project investigating the integration of ICT into mathematics teaching. She has worked in a National Partnerships Project with the Catholic Education Office of WA and a Targeted Mathematics Project with the Association of Independent Schools of Western Australia.

As a past President of the Mathematical Association of Western Australia and member of the National Council of the Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers, Lorraine has been involved in mathematics education at a state and national level. She regularly contributes to mathematics education journals and has presented at state, national and international conferences, as well as working with schools in their professional development programs.
