Annette Blackett is a passionate primary educator with over 14 years of experience teaching and training in Australia, England, Mozambique and Papua New Guinea. She is currently studying a Masters of Education, holds a Bachelor of Education (Primary) from Tabor Adelaide, and qualifications in Early Childhood Education, TESOL/ESL and Indigenous Affairs.
As a keynote speaker, Annette leads international teacher training seminars across Papua New Guinea, specialising in Early Childhood pedagogy, using the Jolly Learning programme, incorporating Jolly Phonics for the foundation years and Jolly Grammar for Years 1-6. She has had the pleasure of working with many diverse cultural groups and has seen the impact of Jolly Learning in a nation of people, with outstanding results in students, both children and adults.
As a lifelong learner, Annette asks ‘Why quality education…?’ as a premise for all of her work. She believes that when we, as dedicated educators, know the ‘why’… we can then proceed to learn the ‘how and what’ of education, bringing about positive change in our world. Annette is enthusiastic about empowering you with extensive, hands-on skills and knowledge of the Jolly Learning programmes.
