The Educator is one of the most renowned Australian publications for senior educational professionals and decision-makers. This lists highlights the outstanding work and research in the name of ensuring students have the highest-quality educational experiences possible.
“It’s an honour to be recognised by the education industry as being part of the solution to improving students’ learning experiences and outcomes. It shows we’re doing something right,” said Jen.

Seven Steps has grown in 2019
In 2019 Jen, her team of frequent flying presenters and her buzzing staff at Seven Steps HQ have continued to support the thousands of teachers and educators using the Seven Steps in their classrooms.
Over the past 12 months, over 5700 teachers have been newly trained in the Seven Steps representing over a thousand schools across Australia. Seven Steps Online, our online learning and classroom resource subscription service has surpassed 14,000 members!
As the number of Seven Steps teachers grows so have the number of incredible stories that filter through to Jen and the team at conferences, PDs and on social media. Witnessing the changes of so many students is mindboggling, it’s why Jen created the Seven Steps back in 2003.
We are constantly blown away by the passionate, caring and inspiring teachers making a real change in their classroom. While your students prepare to celebrate reading as their secret power in Book Week celebrations across the country, we would like to take a moment to celebrate your superpower – being absolute superheroes to your students every single day!
Every Superhero Needs a Sidekick
As superheroes, you need a reliable side-kick. Our goal is to always have our teachers’ backs in their writing classrooms, to be your sidekick!
To celebrate Jen being named in The Educator’s Hot List for the fourth consecutive year we thought we would demonstrate how to quickly and easily transform one of our new informative writing lesson plans into four different lessons!
