WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Assistant Principal, Queen of Apostles School
In a climate where we can be inundated by data, the Aasha for Schools presentation really helped make practical sense of the importance, relevance and power of data. Our staff left the PD feeling inspired and passionate about using data to inform teaching. I would highly recommend Aasha for Schools to both primary and secondary schools.
Linda Holmes, AP Curriculum, St Anne's Catholic School Sarina
We were so impressed with how Selena assisted us on our data journey at the conference, that we then engaged her services to work with our staff, to work with our school and classroom data. This process helped us work together as a group to view data in a positive light, and we are continuing to book Selena's services throughout 2020. One staff member commented that their view on data had completed changed after engaging with her through her PD at our school.
Principal, St Joseph's Malvern
I can't thank you enough for your thorough analysis of our data. We shared your report at yesterday's staff meeting and it was very well received, with lots of great conversations... It was awesome! I am hoping this will guide future professional development in data literacy and I will be using your book!
