'As a teacher I care about being kind, putting in effort and play! I value thinking over knowing and I am keen to always explore other peoples' perspectives.' Lenny Dutton

Lenny shares her work often through her blog Excited Educator. In 2021, she had two MYP design books published by Hodder Education. She has also presented at many in-person and virtual conferences, for Project Zero, BETT, International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), amongst others. She has been involved in a number of development projects with the International Baccalaureate (IB) over the years and was an IB school visitor. Lenny’s focus in education is on kindness, play and empathy. She is interested in bringing global issues into the classroom, often through the focus of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, (sometimes called Global Goals). She values thinking over knowing and uses Project Zero Thinking Routines and slow looking activities to engage her students in the classroom. As an MYP design teacher, she is focused on problem-based design and design thinking. Outside of school, she is interested in travel, museums and galleries, food and spending time with her husband, greyhound Ru and baby Ben!
