Director of learning
A colleague of Summer Howarth told The Educator that it’s “inspiring to witness Summer’s endless passion for education and her means to encourage collaboration, innovation and leadership”. Howarth is the director of learning at Education Changemakers, an organisation dedicated to the encouragement of teacher-led innovation in Australian schools. For the past two years, she’s led Education Changemakers’ national conference, an event run at no cost to teachers that brings together more than 500 educators to promote innovation and leadership inside schools. Additionally, Howarth is a founding member of TeachMeet, a group of communities across the country devoted to sharing ideas and resolving education challenges.
