Meet the presenter

Therese Turner-Jones
Head of English at Wenona School

Named on The Educator's 2022 Hot List (December 2022) and winner of the 2022 Most Influential Educator award, Therese is committed to excellence and ambitious to make a difference. Therese’s students have enjoyed the breadth and depth of the learning experiences provided in her classroom practice. Therese’s philosophy is that she is privileged to teach her students, and she is always in constant awe of what the students bring to their study of English. 

Enriching the lives of students through reading great literature inspires and motivates the planning and delivery of Therese’s lessons. In 2013 Therese completed an International Study in Educational Leadership in Finland, Scotland and England which inspired the literature review for her Masters of Education (Leadership), focused on leadership of school improvement which extends the potential and capabilities of teachers to lead within organisations.

* Complimentary resources will be provided upon publication. Only available to practising secondary school teachers. One complimentary title per attendee, to be distributed at the discretion of OUP secondary educational consultants.
