Bill and Wendy Cowey

I spent nine years filming and editing film of Wendy so I know how much she dislikes being photographed.

Wendy is one of the key developers of a major literacy program in Australia. My role was to record and edit video-footage for teacher-training. We spent years in remote (typically indigenous) schools accumulating zillions of frequent-flyer points. I think Wendy may have grown wings of her own. Wendy is now working as a consultant across Australia. 

My work with the program and with Wendy was truly life-transforming. It helped me understand where and why my own education failed, how education fails for so many kids, how it could have been different, and how to teach others.
