BTS GROUP AB (publ.) – Rosie Connor, the founder of BTS’s social impact, non-profit practice BTS Spark, has been named to The Educator Magazine’s list of “The Best Educators in Australia Influencing Culture and Reform,” in the category “Most Influential Educators 2023.”
This award shows how hard Connor has worked to help school leaders all over the world reach their full potential as confident and effective leaders of the schools they serve. Rosie has led BTS Spark and helped build education leaders in every state in Australia. She has also grown the business in England, the United States, Canada, Singapore, Indonesia, and Kenya.
The list of “Most Influential Educators in Australia” is made up of inspiring leaders and people who are making changes in their communities’ education. Kirsti Hitz-Morton, senior education adviser at Hutton Consulting Australia and an expert in the field, said that the winners were “innovative, up-to-date on the latest research and best practices, flexible, systemic, and relational.”
“It’s an honor to be in the same group as these great teachers,” said Connor. “I’m very thankful to BTS Spark, where I’ve worked for 10 years with a determined team of partners to help school leaders all over the world do their best work. I’m also thankful for my BTS Spark colleagues and coaches, as well as the teachers and managers I’ve met along the way. They all give me ideas for improving the best leadership practices in education.
Hitz-Morton said, “We don’t just need [educators] to have a high IQ; we also need them to be emotionally intelligent.” “The effect on the students and the community is huge if we don’t find the right leaders for the right schools. We don’t give good leaders enough credit for how much good they can do. The best teachers are those who are creative with the curriculum and the way they teach. They know how to bring an end to life.”
