Dr Noella Mackenzie is an associate professor in Literacy Studies at Charles Sturt University, Australia.  Noella is an experienced literacy educator and researcher. Her career began in schools teaching children from 5 to 12 years. Noella spent 13 years as a literacy specialist working with teachers in literacy early intervention and special education. Noella’s research has largely focused on teachers and the learning and teaching of writing.

In recent times she has worked with the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority and developed resources for families and educators.  Her research is informed by her ongoing work with classroom teachers and undergraduate and postgraduate university students and has been published in research journals (e.g. Australasian Journal of Early Childhood, Australian Educational Researcher, Australian Journal of Language and Literacy) and professional journals (e.g. Practical Literacy and Belonging).
