"What colleagues don’t realise is the sense of community and respect when you come to teach in small towns to help these little minds." 👩🏫🙏
As a young girl growing up on a cattle property near Braidwood NSW, Katie Jayne O'Brien was already always thinking of others, whether it was taking care of the animals, handwriting letters or baking cakes for the elderly. 🤩
With teaching running in the family, she obtained a Bachelor of Education from the Australian Catholic University in 2012, with financial support and encouragement from @braidwood_education_foundation when she needed it most.
For Katie Jayne, community is everything. Whether in the remote Northern Territory, Queensland, her home of Braidwood or the small town of Jerilderie where she now works, she makes a tangible difference and is respected and loved.
Action makes a champion. And action is what Katie Jayne O’Brien takes daily to make a difference, instinctively and without hesitation. We are incredibly proud to recognise her as the Audi Foundation - CEF Community Alumni Champion for 2022. We should all be so lucky to have a ‘Katie Jayne’ as a champion in our communities. 🏆👏
