James is a proud primary teacher at Woodridge State School and Griffith University graduate.

As an early career teacher, James relocated to Doomadgee, a remote Indigenous community where he developed and refined his teaching skills. During that time, James harnessed many professional development opportunities including Take the Lead, a Department of Education program for aspiring principals, which led him to a small school principal role in North Queensland.

James is passionate about creating positive change and ensuring students adopt a growth mindset. Outside the classroom, he enjoys spending time with family, going camping and is also a huge TV and movie buff.
