Gavin is a man with a mission. He is a very humble man with genuine interest in making a difference. His positivity, enthusiasm, energy and passion for education is contagious. He thinks he goes around only building schools but in reality, he is also spreading so much love in a world bereft of it. Building schools for the underprivileged in various countries during his vacations every year, speaks a lot about his dedication and mission. His selfless work will help him leave behind a legacy. A thorough professional and a man of his words who gives his 100% to his work and inspires everyone around him. I am very pleased to have collaborated with him to improve teaching standards and the overall school improvement of Iqra International School, Bangalore. I strongly recommend him to all the educators and schools. His selfless work and rich experience speaks volumes about the magic he is going around creating in the field of education.

I came across Gavin’s page while I was looking forward to establishing an educational network in order to support me throughout my teaching path. Luckily, Gavin was a model of a hardworking and dedicating model of teachers who are totally immersed in teaching. In addition, Gavin has the transparency that takes you from the actual educational activities to let you see a complete image of your teaching process.

Gavin McCormack is an excellent tutor and learner who is very knowledgeable and conveys his knowledge of complex material in a manner easily understandable. Individual approach, great advice, positive attitude. Always on time, ready to help, very easy going, intelligent and unique style of teaching and organizing his teaching material and experiments with different tools for education. Good teaching is a mixture of art and science—the ability to grab and keep students’ attention and convey complex information. A few jokes, props or stories don’t hurt. These days according to the new ranking they say that explaining things clearly and getting students involved are the two most important elements for success in the classroom. I see this feature of teaching in Gavin McCormack style of teaching. He demonstrates confidence while teaching I believe having confidence in your knowledge of the material being learned to having confidence that your teaching acumen is second to none. Though these two (and many other) “confidences” are important the most critical confidence a teacher can have is much more general and tougher to describe than that. Working in schools is difficult and stressful, and also immensely rewarding. But if you’re not confident that you’re in the right place when you’re teaching you’re probably not. Gavin McCormack style of teaching demonstrates confidence and he knows he is in the right spot doing what is beneficial for his student young learners. He believes in building the community and his class of learning goes beyond just school classrooms. Gavin is a fantastic teacher who genuinely connects with students and other team members and not afraid to show emotions in class or outside. His lessons exercise compassion and stories are full of self-learning. His lessons teach the students to be genuine and he is generous in praising and downplay their shortcomings. His way of teaching assures them that with hard work and practice, they will eventually find difficult assignments easier. Art, music, photography, fun, storytelling & nature, drama play an important part of his classroom. An awesome teacher, organizer, principal and I highly recommend him for families with kids of all ages. Gavin has the ability to inspire students to explore their gifts, and I am confident that in times to come he will continue his positive influence on many students to come. With his excellent communication skills, which is evident when examining his success in creating strong teacher-parent, team relations or connecting with students who require extra care. He is both professional and approachable, which allows for open and constructive discussion about the student at hand. I am pleased to recommend Gavin McCormack without reservation, for any position requiring strategy, hard work, initiative, loyalty, and dedication. My best wishes for his being future and success in years ahead. Best wishes

Hello! In this fast moving digital times, education sector has benefitted a lot as educators, facilitators and parents are getting connected on social platforms. There is a huge exchange of knowledge but if I have come across someone who has been very generous in sharing his experiences then that’s you Gavin McCormack! The most striking feature about your posts is that they are directly from the heart and reach right to the hearts of all those who read them here on LinkedIn. People usually want to keep their knowledge to themselves and are reluctant in sharing lest it gets used/ copied by others but I believe that knowledge when shared increases and benefits the one who shares, the most. Thank you Gavin for sharing all the gems that you have gathered over the years that you have spent with children and teachers around the world. I have been a pre school facilitator and administrator for about 15years and let me tell you I am proud of what I do. Your write ups motivate me to do more for the benefit of children and teachers. I was never very active on LinkedIn till I started reading your thoughts and trust me i have totally become your fan! Hope to meet you some day Gavin McCormack

Gavin McCormack is an educator. He is a passionate teacher and a courageous leader. He has poured his heart and soul into the profession to create ripples of knowledge around the world. There are very few leaders who carry forward the tradition of teaching inside a classroom along with handling an administrative position. I feel we need more teachers like Gavin to actually make the world a global village. We at Tagore Global School have appointed him as a Teacher Ambassador for the wealth of knowledge and practical training that he brought into our school. Glad to be connected with you Gavin and our best wishes with you.

He is grounded in his work and offers practical easy to use tools for the schools and teachers and dare I say parents, who want more for the children in their care. He is an excellent teacher leader who is excited about giving of himself towards the development of professional competence in the Education Space. I would recommend him as an excellent candidate for collaborations.

Gavin is a god’s gift to all the lives he touches.Highly experienced ,open, self motivated , bundle of enormous energy, he is extremely simple in his conveyals for biggest ideas sure to bring change. Rebelling the faulty conventional system in a positive way he is passionately lost in his own world of inner satisfaction and self gratification . Visibly exhibiting the values he has received from his upbringing and experiences ,he is a real philanthropist in complete sense. All his teachings are completely student oriented and infact teacher oriented to get better results in the long run. Besides better classroom mgmt , teaching methodologies and academics… touching the psychological and moral strategies to increase the EQ of not only students, teachers but community at large as well , is the greatest strength I find in him because that’s what the world lacks and needs the most today. Not preaching but actually practicing what he speaks is what makes him stand apart outstandingly. It’s all easier said than done or read on social media,thats y to me he is no less than St. (Father) Teresa making him a real ( Super) Man of substance. Highly recommended!!
