Gia Yen Luong, Green Templeton College Student ProfileMSc Education (Comparative and International Education)
2019

Hello! My name is Gia-Yen (‘Ya-Ian’, or G) and I am undertaking the MSc in Education (Comparative and International Education). I am a secondary maths/science teacher and am passionate about creating opportunities for more equitable education in Australia, where there is a surprisingly large achievement and opportunity disparity between students from different socioeconomic backgrounds. I have previously studied a double degree in law/neuroscience at the University of New South Wales and have a Masters of Teaching (Secondary and Research) from Deakin University in partnership with Teach for Australia.

My husband and I originally hail from Adelaide, South Australia, and we both look forward to being immersed in the Green Templeton community of like-minded people who are passionate about their area of interest. We are also looking forward to taking advantage of all of the sporting opportunities available, and are keen to represent Green Templeton in any and all sporting and non-sporting capacities!
