Nerida Murray

Courage & Renewal Facilitator
Speaks English

Nerida Murray (B.Ed.,Dip.T.) has been a secondary school teacher with Education Queensland (the public school system) for 46 years. For 28 of those years Nerida held leadership positions right around the state. In 2006 Nerida came across a book highlighting the work Parker Palmer had been doing in the United States with public school teachers. It was this book that inspired Nerida to attend the first Courage to Teach® Retreat held in Australia in Canberra in 2008. Her experience at this weekend as well as other retreats she attended reaffirmed for Nerida the importance of nurturing one’s inner life in order to be fully present and authentic when participating in the role/s which fill one’s outer life. In 2013 Nerida co-facilitated her first Courage & Renewal Retreat and has been doing so for the last 10 years. In 2016 Nerida was accredited as a GROWTH Coach, a role which marries well with Courage & Renewal Principles & Practices. She continues to Coach teachers and leaders in Public Schools.
