As an accredited facilitator

I have worked collaboratively with leaders and teachers to address a wide range of professional learning and development needs. My expertise includes guiding teachers through inquiry processes, and supporting culturally responsive practice. I have considerable experience and expertise in working with secondary teachers and leaders to embed effective literacy practice.

My experience includes

Secondary Literacy Facilitator working with individual teachers, departments, teams, and leaders to identify the literacy challenges that students encounter and how to address them in the context of each learning area. I have also worked with many Literacy Leaders to review and develop across-school literacy plans and literacy interventions to accelerate student achievement.
English Facilitator working with leaders and teachers to create meaningful and engaging learning experiences for students in English.
Literacy Online Facilitator contributing to and encouraging teacher participation in the Secondary Literacy Community on Literacy Online, and developing and quality assuring online materials.
