Anne Glennie is a literacy consultant, author and trainer. Her current courses include Reflective Reading and Phonics Forever. To date, she has trained over 10,000 teachers in all aspects of literacy across Scotland. A classroom teacher first and foremost, Anne provides training that delegates describe as ‘creative’, ‘fun’ and ‘inspirational’—with an emphasis on the practicalities of teaching and learning in the primary classroom.
With a degree in English Language and Literature, Anne has always been passionate about learning and books, and she is now a publisher at Cranachan Publishing, specialising in high quality, Scottish historical fiction for children and teaching resources for schools. She has also written several (phonically decodable) reading books for a leading educational publisher’s reading scheme.
Anne is a founding committee member of IFERI—the International Foundation for Effective Reading Instruction, a member of the RRF (The Reading Reform Foundation) and is known for her thought-provoking education comment pieces.
When Anne is not training or travelling, she can be found in the remote wilds of Scotland where she lives on the edge of the Atlantic on the Isle of Lewis, with her husband, two children, ten Hebridean sheep and one Moomin (French Bulldog). She collects vintage Ladybird books and she shares her office with a giant stuffed giraffe called Jeffrey.
