What others are saying about Dr. Stager…

Gary is amazing as a mentor, a thoughtful, perceptive and passionate educator. Any school that invites him into their school will be rewarded with insights from his international experience and sensitivity to the thinking of young people. Your leadership team will value his help with school directions and policy priorities. He helped me at MLC and continues to support and encourage school leaders, teachers and students in Australia and internationally.

I’ve known Gary Stager for what seems forever (he’s like that) and continue to draw from his wisdom and experience for my own teaching. He knows the Australian educational landscape well, having lived here on and off for several years and completing his PhD at Melbourne university. One thing is for sure: irrespective of your educational philosophy, his presentations and workshops will inform, but more importantly challenge—what every good teacher wants.
