The pragmatic development of Penny Matthews is the central focus of this chapter. Matthews highlights several life-defining moments of hustle during her transition from child to adult, with the impact on these experiences upon her approach to EE discussed. This chapter is an excellent example of how the lived experience of EE educators can be effectively transferred into our students’ lives. The importance of finding your way in EE through personal development and networking is clearly evidenced throughout the chapter. Working in a context with assessment challenges, Matthews outlines how to overcome such obstacles to ensure her students’ learning is advanced, not hindered.
