Aussie Educators making a splash internationally
There are some pretty prominent names that I have left off my, “22 Australian Educators to follow in 2022” list and that was due to the fact that I couldn’t really do them justice with describing their impact on Australian (and international) education in a couple of sentences. If you don’t know any of these people yet, I advise you to check out the impact that they have been having on education around the world.
