ACEL President's welcome, Dr Briony Scott


Welcome to ACEL ’23 and a very happy new year to everyone! Whilst tempted to use ChatGPT to construct my welcome, I’m very confident that no ‘bot’ can truly replace the heartfelt acknowledgement needed for the work undertaken by our profession, particularly in recent years. As we begin a new year, I would like to encourage you to be kind to yourself and kind to each other. Whatever ‘noise’ comes down the pipeline in the months ahead, remain focused on the important work that is being undertaken in schools across this country, encourage each other as you work to understand and improve on best practice, and enjoy your own personal learning journey, even as you encourage your students to do likewise. Thank you for all you do, and all the very best for 2023!
