Deputy Principal (Teaching and Learning) Anna Sever at Haileybury Private School in Melbourne

Anna is passionate about the power of education to change people’s lives; she believes it is her responsibility to reshape what it looks like in this country.

With experience in some of Australia’s best independent schools and overseas, Anna has a deep knowledge of education and innovation. She pushes the world of teaching and learning to widen its aperture, to think differently about what it means to go to school whilst honouring traditions and values. She has also been pivotal in developing significant digital transformations which has meant that access to high quality education is no longer geographically restricted.

Anna is the definition of restless. She champions marginal gains, to always look for opportunities to learn and grow. She believes that our work is never done, we are just iterating on those gone before us, custodians for a period in time.

A lifelong learner herself, Anna has completed her MBA at Melbourne Business School, the AICD Company Directors Course, has a Masters of Education Management from The University of Melbourne and studied at both New York University’s Stern School of Business and Harvard's Graduate School of Education. She has also worked with Chief Executive Woman, consulted with various schools and presented at many conferences across Australia, sharing her extensive knowledge and expertise in order to help others succeed.
