Leesa Jeffcoat AM

Leesa has been dedicated to quality throughout her career, both within and outside the classroom.  While her responsibilities have become broader, her early commitment to subject English has remained strong and her leadership in the areas has become most significant for Queensland.  Leesa’s original involvement as Head of Department in two Central Queensland schools was followed by some years as Principal of Cathedral College and then by senior positions in the Catholic Education Office, Rockhampton.  Leesa’s support for English teaching has been active throughout and her involvement in ETAQ has been maintained.  Her current role in subject English is crucial.  As Chair of the English Subject Advisory Committee of the BSSSS Leesa provides leadership and inspiration at a time of development of new syllabuses in the subject area. In this as always, Leesa  demonstrates an enormous capacity for hard work combined with good humour and a strong sense of humanity.
