Susan Heeps

PLD Consultant

Susan works as an education consultant based in Auckland. Her consultancy area is currently in the Auckland and Northland regions.

She works in schools in the following areas:

  • science

  • STEM

  • curriculum integration

  • teaching as inquiry

  • student agency

  • assessment for learning.

Susan has extensive experience in facilitating professional development both in her recent work as a consultant and in school leadership roles as a deputy principal, dean and head of curriculum.

Susan builds strong collaborative relationships with all ākonga. Senior leaders and teachers are connected to science/STEM experiences that are engaging and cognitively stimulating and that enable reflection about current assumptions and practices in teaching science and STEM. This provides a platform for the sharing of research and approaches to teaching and learning that promote effective pedagogy, collaborative planning and resource development.

Here are some of the schools Susan has worked with:

  • Albany Primary School

  • Kaeo School

  • Greenmeadows Intermediate School

  • Tangowahine School

  • Sunnynook Primary School
