Our Team

Our team of teachers, creatives and technologists have two goals; to improve the progress and joy of learning in students, and to empower teachers to do their best work in the classroom. Students and teachers will both be developing their intricate knowledge of skills as they move towards mastery.

Lucy and Alina founded Cleverbean in 2019 when Lucy was fed up with the quality of support teachers were given for the classroom practice. Get to know Lucy and Alina more below!

Lucy's profile picture


is a primary school teacher of 15 years, teacher mentor, committee member of ALEA in ACT and a huge advocate for keeping education organisations accountable for quality, being transparent in how they use what research to support schools

From very early in her career when struggling to engage students in their learning, she went on a quest to find the key principles that led to increased engagement, positive classroom behaviours and learning outcomes for every style of student, with any learning disability.

Lucy developed a blue print of lesson mastery for learning mastery, practicing this within her own classrooms, her peers classrooms and her graduates classrooms to refine her work which has become Cleverbean.

Alina's profile picture


explores complex problems and designs experiences that delicately weave meaningful technology into real-life environments. After dedicating her career to doing this with some of Australia’s most recognised brands such as Qantas, Temple & Webster, and Sydney Opera House, she chose to redirect her skills to her area of passion, in education.

She found that teachers were limited by the tools on offer, many providing conflicting experiences that left them feeling redundant from the learning experience. Others while helpful, still required a lot of adaptation to meet basic needs.

She wants to create a paradigm shift in education, where we hero and empower the teacher as the most important asset in the classroom.
