Steve Francis, CEO, Happy School
Steve Francis believes Australian education is facing a teacher shortage and that great practitioners will be more in demand than ever. He is passionate about work-life satisfaction, keeping things simple and helping great school leaders optimise their schools. Over the past year, Francis has worked with schools to increase student voice and ensure teachers are receiving formative feedback from their students using the Survey My Class instrument he developed. For the past two years, Francis has also been a member of the judging panel for the Australian Education Awards.
