My Experience

Working with school leaders and principals on the Leadership and Assessment contract is my current role as a facilitator. Their dedication and passion puts me in awe, it is a privilege to share my own commitment and enthusiasm for growing great leaders. Great leaders ultimately make a difference for all learners, teachers and students. Building effective, professional learning relationships is supported by my teaching experience, love of learning, successful primary principal-ship and first time principal mentoring.

Listening carefully and asking reflective, thoughtful questions establishes the current reality and probes possible future actions and goals. A caring, empathetic, positive approach, builds trusting relationships, allowing me to challenge current thinking, motivate action, support the development of systems that support leadership and management actions across the school.

I work collaboratively with leaders to effect change for improved learning outcomes and student success.

Carefully balanced support and challenge, with urgent action, related to need and context, empowers leaders to lead learning within a culturally responsive framework.
