Bronwyn Cook joined the History Council of Victoria in November 2018, representing the History Teachers’ Association of Victoria (HTAV).

Bronwyn is a secondary school teacher of History at Dandenong High School, and a director on the HTAV board. She has taught History for the past fifteen years in communities experiencing many socio-economic and literacy challenges. She is strongly committed to government school education, and especially supportive of strong History programs for those who experience social disadvantage.

Caring, competent and passionate teachers are the key.

Bronwyn is passionate about History as a teacher and a learner. She holds a Masters in Education: Studies of Asia as well as a Graduate Certificate of Research. She is currently undertaking doctoral research on 'Shifting Depictions of the Vietnam War in Victorian Government Education Policies, Curriculum and Textbooks, 1975- 2005'.
