“I must admit that being a teacher was one of the last things on my career list when growing up.”Mr Barry Yau
“In my teaching at ANU, I’ve been especially inspired by the belief to go above and beyond the call of duty, to motivate and inspire my students to enjoy studying, and to engage with them on the edges of the curriculum in areas such as work/life balance, wellbeing, and helping them shape their notion of career success.”Mr Barry Yau
