After graduating with a Batchelor of Education from the South Australian College of Advanced Education in 1986 Tish headed overseas to work and play for 2 years. On her return she taught for 11 years in remote educational settings such as Cook on the Western Australian border(now closed), the Pitjantjatjara Lands and Pt Pirie. She also enjoyed two teaching stints in Japan during 1997 and 2004. In 2000 she finally returned to Adelaide. In 2001 and again in 2004 she became the mother of two sons who she is determined to raise as feminists. She left teaching in 2008 to become the Women’s Officer at the Australian Education Union and is thankful to have a job that allows her to raise the profile of women and take part in women’s activities and issues on a daily basis.
