Eva’s 38-year career as an educator has provided her with experience in various educational settings in both urban and rural areas, including The Parks, Whyalla Stuart, Taperoo High School, and Thebarton Senior College. Eva has held leadership positions in Counselling, Curriculum, Timetabling, and Development, and for the past 10 years, she has been Principal at Thebarton Senior College. Her deep understanding of the diverse needs of complex educational communities, particularly those from CALD and disadvantaged backgrounds, has driven her advocacy for students’ rights, educational opportunities, and equity.
