About me

I am currently on maternity leave with my second baby, Mason (and loving it!)


I joined CORE as part of the Learning with Digital Technologies Team, specializing in Inclusive Practice and Universal design for Learning in 2013 and continued this in 2014. I returned to Fairhaven in 2015.

Over the past 10 years I have been working in special education at Fairhaven School as a classroom teacher, ICT lead teacher, Associate Principal and ICTPD Cluster Facilitator. I am excited by the opportunities technologies bring to learning enviroments and always keen to explore new and inclusive ways to implement them. Usually you will find me behind a camera capturing those 'golden moments'. In 2012 I participated in the National Aspiring Principals Programme with Te Toi Tupu gaining a wealth of knowledge of senior leadership in schools. Prior to working with special needs students I taught for 3 years in a mainstream high school (yrs 8-13).


Give a man a fish and he has food for a day....

    Nice one for voting again doll and thanks for the 'thumbs up' clarification in the poll comments too. Awesome.

    I'm thinking on Friday I'm going to post a summary of these activities with an explanation for why the tasks are useful/important to us in this community.
