Leanne Youitt, a Master Teacher from Aspley State School, is the kind of warm, encouraging presence every school community wishes they had. Her easy-going, non-judgmental panache is what has led to her being nominated for this year’s QCT’s Excellent Leadership in Teaching and Learning award.
For over thirty years Leanne has dedicated herself to improving the educational experience she is able to provide for her students. Through conducting workshops, managing content-specific professional development courses across all curriculum areas and being an active participant in steering resourceful dialogue, Leanne has modelled her passion for education.
Her open-door policy makes Leanne approachable to both fellow staff members and students. She acts as a mentor who both engages and guides those who seek her support and feedback.
