Meet the Creators
Steve is a passionate educator who has significant experience across a range of educational settings.
For the last two years he has been working as an Educational Consultant specializing in the area of sustainable school change and leadership.
In his past life, he was the foundation Principal of Rolleston College in Canterbury and prior to that worked as Deputy Principal at Alfriston College, Regional Facilitator for the Te Kotahitanga Project, and English Curriculum advisor for the Auckland region during the original implementation of NCEA.
Along this journey, Steve gained extensive knowledge and experience in leading and developing authentic, skill-based learning contexts that empower learners and teachers. Additionally, he has also researched the role of creativity in the learning experience and has worked extensively in relationship-based learning programmes where all learners can thrive.
Finally, Steve admits to being an obsessive doodler who still reads comics, listens to too much loud music, and follows a football team who seem unable to ever win anything.
Rebecca has worked in education for the past 26 years, she is always looking for ways to improve the educational experience for children.
In response to the recent disruption to education, Rebecca was delighted to design a tool book with Steve Saville, in the hope that it may help teachers and leaders be empowered to take charge of their own professional learning.
As an advocate of Learning Without Limits and Teaching to the North East, where the guiding principles of trust co-agency and everyone drive transformational change, she hopes to harness and amplify these key philosophies to reduce disparities for marginalised students and create equitable outcomes for all learners. These themes are woven throughout the work that both Steve and Rebecca create.
