Jane has demonstrated initiative, energy and the drive for excellence in all of the programs, policies and activities she has initiated or been responsible for. This desire to innovate and embrace change and challenges as both a teacher and a library leader, has enabled Jane to take the lead in areas such as digital learning resources, providing the knowledge and skills necessary to optimise their use amongst staff and students. In addition, Jane has contributed to her profession through her leadership roles and involvement in professional bodies such as ASLA, ALIA, IBO, IBAP and SLAV and through her publications and presentations at a range of educational forums at a local, national and international level.
