7 Joanne McEachen Joanne is an internationally recognized educational leader, based in Seattle, Washington. Currently she leads her own international consultancy, The Learner First, where she unashamedly focuses on working in partnerships to inspire people, to motivate people, and to show why it s worth pushing harder to accelerate yet more children up to where they need to be. She knows and makes others believe that the work they do every day actually changes kids destinies. Joanne works with educational leaders and shows them how it can be fundamentally different. She has a successful track record working at multiple levels in the education system as a teacher, a school principal, a regional administrator (superintendent), and National Manager in various roles for the Ministry of Education in New Zealand. She has led and managed countrywide education change initiatives by focusing on the most important outcomes and the fundamental values focused on learners, driving the educational change, regardless of the obstacles. Joanne is crystal clear about learners needs being far more important than anything else. Prior to her move to the U.S.A, Joanne was hired to lead a huge system-wide change as National Manager for the Student Achievement Function and Professional Learning and Development for the Ministry of Education and was successful in achieving it. Very few individuals have the critical mix of what it takes to lead sector-wide change in education, the ability to see the big picture and the courage and the tenacity to see it through to completion. In addition to her persistence and determination in driving change internally within a government agency, Joanne was incredibly persuasive with school principals and other leaders within schools. Joanne uses a multidisciplinary and refreshingly practical, plain-language approach to figuring out what s going to work and how we ll know it has. She helps educational organizations infuse outcome-focused thinking into policy and programming; develops tools and methodologies to support change; and supports inquiry and self-review.
