I now have to add Robyn Cotter to my inspiration list. With myself ‘talking and directing less’ it has now given the students a chance to show me their true colours, and I must say how proud I am of them. I now have time to observe, listen and question without feeling I am doing all the work. The tables are turning and it is the students now advising me what they are thinking/learning.

It is a great privilege to be working with Robyn she has so much experience and so many wonderful strategies to help every single child in the classroom. It is just mind blowing watching Robyn modelling in the classroom the excellent strategies that have been tried and tested throughout Robyn’s teaching career. We are very lucky to have Robyn guide us through this journey.
