Lee Cunningham’s journey to employment as an IEU organiser is a bit different to the usual story, but she brings with her a skill set that should prove valuable.
Lee did a degree in Property Economics at Western Sydney University upon leaving school and worked as a valuer in the retail property world for five years.
“When I studied Property, being a valuer was sold as an honourable and respected role in the profession,” Lee said.
“But when I got into it I found it didn’t sit so well with me. I’d been told all my life I’d make a great teacher and I came to the realisation I would really love to teach.”
With some experience working with children as a swimming coach, Lee undertook a Bachelor of Primary Education and since 2015 has had casual and 12 month contracts in Catholic and Education Department primary schools in Sydney.
