Three ACT educators were recognised today by the Australian Council for Educational Leaders during the ACEL conference in Canberra today.
Joy Burch was on hand to hand our congratulations.
Teachers tend to be good people, so it’s nice when good things happen to them.
“I congratulate the ACT winners of these prestigious national education awards which recognise the excellence of our leaders and educators,” Ms Burch said.
“Quality teachers and leaders are vital to a quality education system and these awards reflect the commitment and talent of our local educators in providing students with the opportunity to reach their full potential.”
