Training Experience

Through her experience in diverse American primary charter schools across a number of states Stacy has served as a mentor and facilitator for developing teachers early in their careers.  This personalised training and support programme was designed to maximise the impact on both the initial teachers and their students.  With her proven track record, she brings a wealth of experience and an international dimension to the Initial Teacher Education team.

Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel.
