Judith Wakeman

Teacher Librarian

Judith combines a Bachelor of Education with Graduate Diplomas in Computer Science and Information Management alongside a seemingly insatiable thirst for knowledge and a love of books in her current role.

As a teacher librarian, Judith quickly realises the special relationships many students build with their school librarian, helping them view their library as a safe place – a learning environment where they are able to explore ideas and be themselves free of judgement from others.

Her extensive reading comprises largely of books from the Young Adult genre. She has studied Bibliotherapy and Youth Mental Health First Aid, and believes that the school library can be one of many exciting and colorful pathways to building and maintaining good mental health and resilience for young people struggling with life pressures.

Judith secretly dreams of writing a Maths book and of Swimming for Gold as she represents Australia.
