About me

I am a fulltime Teacher, at Hornby High School in Christchurch where I am HOD Home Economics. I am combining fulltime teaching and almost completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Education (e-Learning and Digital Technologies in Education) and my Master of Education at Univeristy of Canterbury.

I am interested in the delivery of authentic and contextualised curricula to students, 21st Century learning and blended online learning programmes which I would like to become further involved in. I am also out school GCSN champion, attending the GSCN meetings.

As a result of my studies last year, I have jointly published a paper on blended online learning. We presented a workshop and poster at Ulearn 2011 based on this paper. More information can be found through /pg/blog/all/

Also, I am active in two subject associations, HETTANZ (Home Economics) where I am on the local committee and on the TENZ (Technology Education) executive.
