The SBW philosophy “Dare to do what you Dream” has always driven Jodi’s deep seeded values and passion as a mother, daughter, educator, leader, and mentor. It was no surprise that she was naturally drawn to the position of School Principal at the SBW International School Westpfalz in Landstuhl, Germany, coming all the way from Australia!
During her 28 years of experience in education that spans many continents, her passion as an educational leader, coach and mentor has always been to unlock the potential in others.
Being an internationally minded and interculturally aware leader, Jodi’s goal is to authentically develop excellence in well-rounded, passionate, open minded and globally driven Learning Partners at ISW.
“I believe teaching and learning should have significance beyond the walls of a school, and it needs to make the world a better place for the children who will be agents of its change. I embrace the notion that collaborative leadership should strive to provide an environment whereby, together, Learning Partners and Mentors not only focus upon educational goals, but moreover aim to awaken students’ curiosity and creativity, potential and purpose in order to provide them with the tools they will need for the 21st Century” Jodi Fillingame.
We wish Jodi every success for her new start in our ISW community.
Charlotte Ducker and Stuart Rich, Managing Directors ISW
