Dionne LASHLEY

Music Teacher / Year 8 Dean

I joined the Discovery College community in 2013 after teaching in the performing arts in the US and in Barbados, my home country. I am passionate about the transformative power of education and am grateful to see it at work in both of my roles as a Music teacher and a year-level Dean. Equity, student agency and critical thinking are high on the list of my values as an educator. I enjoy research just as much as I enjoy teaching and working with students and my colleagues here at Discovery College. When I’m not doing, talking or thinking about education – which is rare – I am writing songs, dancing or traveling to beach destinations. I am happy to now list Hong Kong among the places I call home.
