Katrina Davey is an accomplished VCE History and Geography teacher. She has a passion for developing curriculum and has lead Humanities faculties at numerous Victorian schools. Katrina has shown a strong commitment to the History Teachers' Association of Victoria (HTAV), writing VCE textbooks and examination materials, presenting regularly at conferences and mentoring History teachers. She enjoys contributing to education periodicals and in 2017 led a successful History curriculum project awarded the Victorian State Winner of the Federal Government's Anzac Day School's Award.

Katrina was part of the consultation process for the Australian Curriculum for Geography and strongly advocates the importance of all Humanities disciplines.

Recently, Olivia has shared her experience and expertise based on this framework in her presentation at the annual GTAV Conference.
