Deputy Director-General, State Schools and Student Support


As Deputy Director-General – State Schools and Student Support, Stacie provides visionary, values-based leadership to promote equity, excellence and continuous improvement in education delivery across Queensland. She is responsible for leading innovative and effective educational reforms in line with local expertise and world-leading practice to ensure the success of every student and to support our state schools as employers of choice within the teaching profession.

Stacie is an experienced and effective education leader who has served the Queensland state school system as a teacher, principal and system leader since 1996. Her extensive career has taken her from the gold fields of Charters Towers to the cane fields of Bundaberg as a teacher, head of school, deputy principal and principal. She has worked with school communities across Queensland in urban, rural and remote locations—including primary and secondary schools—to achieve increased alignment between policy, curriculum and pedagogy responsive to the context of each school and community.

As an experienced educator, mentor and policy developer, Stacie is known for the passion, expertise and insight she extends to understanding the implications of high-impact pedagogical practices and sound school governance. She brings to her role an appreciation for the real difference that teachers and school leaders can make in the lives of Queensland’s greatest resource: our young learners. She is committed to working collaboratively to support educators in discovering what works in each school to bring out the best in our students and assure their success in the long term.

As the Deputy Director-General, State Schools and Student Support, Stacie will bring authentic leadership and organisational skills, with deep knowledge and understanding of regional school needs, curriculum, pedagogy and school performance, to ensure the delivery of quality learning outcomes for children and young people across Queensland.
