“Avis Glaze is truly a world-class leader in education.
I first met Dr Glaze on a visit to Toronto, Canada in 2005, and was immediately struck by her extensive knowledge of effective educational practices and her obvious dedication for the students, teachers and school communities in her jurisdiction.
Since that meeting, Dr Glaze has become a highly respected friend of the New South Wales Department of Education and Training. Together with colleagues in various leadership roles within our organization, I have had the pleasure of maintaining an ongoing dialogue with Dr Glaze about the foundations of high quality public education.
Dr Glaze’s authentic leadership over a number of years in relation to literacy and numeracy development and the provision of highest quality public education to all students, especially those from socio-economically disadvantaged and Indigenous backgrounds has proved inspirational to many of my colleagues in New South Wales.
I am thrilled to hear of Dr Glaze’s latest venture, The Avis Glaze Letters to Educators. I am sure that Dr Glaze will continue to inspire educators around the world with her personable, practical and passionate insights.”
