Lesley Tait

Lesley is currently the Head of School at Lincoln Community School in Accra, Ghana. Originally from New Zealand, where she worked as a public school principal, she has now been in the international teaching world for the past 12 years. She served as the Elementary Principal and Director of Teaching and Learning at the American Cooperative School of Tunis, Tunisia and then as the Director of Teaching and Learning and Interim Head of School at the American School of Brasilia, Brazil. She holds a Masters Degree (Honors) in Educational Administration from the University of Auckland, New Zealand.

Lesley is a strong believer in the importance of listening to the many voices in guiding and leading our schools and along with the team from LCS is working hard to ensure that this is part of the daily life of the school. Really listening to the thoughts and opinions of staff, students and parents is fundamental to her work.

She is also passionate about ensuring that each student knows and understands how to be a learner, where they are up to in that process and where they need to go next. However, her definition of learning is not confined to the academic subjects of a school; learning to be a great person who is well and happy, ready to lead the world is also important to her. Lesley sits on the AISA Board Membership Committee.
