Kirby Short - Pro Cricketer *and* High School Deputy Principal

Recorded by | Run time: 23 min, 24 sec


Professional cricketer and high school deputy principal, Kirby Short, leads a spectacular double life. Listen to Kirby, an experienced HPE teacher who has made the transition into administration whilst maintaining her career as an elite athlete, talk about striking the balance. Kirby’s the captain of the Big Bash League’s Brisbane Heat, and Deputy Principal at MacGregor State High School. She chats with me about the importance of having “other” in your life as a teacher (whether that be a family or another passion), and the way her supporting, sporting family shaped her as an athlete and as an educator.
