About me


I am a passionate educator who currently teachers a year 2/3 class. I love technology and am fascinated by its transformative implications for education. I have a firm belief that the use of technology should have as strong a pedagogical background as reading, writing and maths. Cool


I also really like words.

    Hi Abbie
    I saw a post you had made about Working with juniors in a MLE. Just wondering how you monitor the children have been to the "must do" activities? Do you use gafe to keep track monitor children?
