She is one of the reSolve Maths by inquiry champions and was the teacher keynote speaker at the Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers Biennial Conference in July 2019. She has shared teaching ideas through workshops at the Queensland Association of Mathematics Teachers&rsquo; Early Years Conference, and at the AAMT Biennial Conference. In 2018 Libby was a successful recipient of an Advance Queensland Engaging Science grant and organised STEM-related learning experiences for students at Injinoo Junior Campus in far north Queensland. The main aim of the initiative was to raise the profile of Science and the other interrelated disciplines in the remote context and create a community of learning. Virtual incursions and a teacher PD workshop from Ben Newsome of Fizzics Education inspired and excited teachers and students.
