What My Clients Have to Say
Rebecca was lead Principal and Project Director of a Higher Learning ICTPD cluster and when I worked with her between 2007 and 2011. She has substantive knowledge in the areas of accelerating priority learners through improved student agency and enhancing student achievement through formative assessment. She has expertise in Literacy, Numeracy, Inquiry Learning and e Learning. Rebecca is passionate about ensuring 21st century learners have the best possible opportunities to succeed. Under her leadership I have seen her learners in her school excel through the use of ePortfolios as learning and assessment artefacts. The learners also used them as evidence for their student led conferences.
I have co-authored and co-presented with Rebecca and she is excellent at facilitating professional learning. She has worked confidently with large groups of teachers to enhance their understandings around fostering student agency and assessment capability.
I have no hesitation in recommending Rebecca as a Professional Learning and Development facilitator and Education Consultant.

Rebecca was contracted to complete two whole school staff appraisals in a limited time at the end of 2019. She was quick, efficient and professional with staff highlighting her ability to quickly build a rapport and gain their respect and trust.
