Presenter's Biography: Justine Yeates

Since 2015 Justine has been working at Dwight School Seoul as the Head of ‘Quest’ in the Key Learning Center. The Key Learning Center is responsible for four types of services for many students; EAL (English as an Additional Language), Special Education Needs (SEN), Spark of Genius, and Extra Tuition. There is a strong focus on personalized learning and encourage a safe and supportive learning environment embracing diversity and engagement.

After graduating as an Early Childhood and Primary teacher in Australia, and a Montessori teacher in USA, Justine spent over 20 years teaching in both early childhood and primary settings, in the USA and Switzerland and Australia.

Justine developed a passion for working with children who thrive when they are given additional support for their development and learning. This inspired her to do post graduate study in Mental Health for the Teaching Profession, then completed a Masters in Counselling at Monash University in Australia. Justine continued to work with children with additional needs at a school from pre-school to year six. She went on to develop her own business in Melbourne, delivering early intervention to children in schools, kindergartens and working with families in a home setting. This role was complimented with over six years of continuous lecturing and tutoring for the Bachelor of Education at three different universities in Melbourne.

Other highlights of her career involve taking a role in an action research project and teaching a bilingual program for Melbourne University. In addition, Justine coordinated speech and language programs for children with a disability, which were evaluated by Murdoch Research Institute in Melbourne. She took part in developing an online learning course for Autism awareness for the Royal College of General Practitioners in Australia.

Justine currently is the chair of Social Justice (Community Service) at Dwight School Seoul and is committed to helping maintain Dwight’s inclusive educational philosophy.

Justine has three adult sons living in Australia and USA.
