Director of Research and Development

Alex Ioannou has worked as an educator for over 30 years, with nearly 20 of these in Montessori education in an Adolescent program. This work has built skills in liaising with accrediting bodies and standards and a determination to support and build capacity in teachers for the remarkable work they do. Alex was recently appointed to join the Montessori Australia team as Director of Research and Development and is excited to be working to translate these skills into supporting practitioners across all areas from Early Childhood through to Ageing Services. Her work, along with various other aspects of the role, will look to collate and support research within Montessori services in Australia and the region and support the meaningful development of professional learning for practitioners.
