Stephanie Martin

Adjunct Fellow

Stephanie graduated with a Masters degree in Ancient History from the University of Auckland in 2016 and subsequently went on to complete a Masters of Teaching (Primary). Throughout her studies she held positions as a Graduate Teaching Assistant and Lecturer.

Since then she has been a primary school teacher. In this role she has seen first-hand how many children are struggling in our education system. She served as a University Liaison Lecturer and contributed to ongoing innovations to the Masters of Teaching before it was suspended in 2019. She completed a Graduate Diploma in Applied Psychology in 2022. 

At the Initiative Stephanie builds on her work in the classroom. She develops evidence-informed policy advice to improve teaching and learning in our schools, especially for those who are not currently thriving.
