About me

Kia Ora, I am the proud Deputy Principal at Takapuna Primary School.  My responsibilities include leading the Junior School team of 8 wonderful teachers, Assessment coordinator, Literacy leader and SENCO. Over my 20 years of teaching I have mostly taught on the North Shore but have also had experience teaching overseas in North Carolina, U.S.A where my husband, Jason and I lived for two years.  My journey at Takapuna Primary School began five years ago and it has been wonderful to work with dedicated staff who are passionate about learning and achieving high standards.  I am excited to be a part of the National Aspiring Principals Programme for 2014 and look forward to learning more about VLN and growing in my learning through this network.

    Kia ora Carla and welcome to a new school year and a new learning community.

    I am part of the online team and we are here to support you to help you get the best out of the VLN.

    I see you have not joined any groups, maybe I could suggest some groups to help you get the most out of the VLN.

    You might like to join the "Getting started on the VLN" group, here you will find a wealth of tips to help you get the most out of the VLN.

    If e learning is your passion, you might like to join this group too. /groups/profile/118255/enabling-elearning/

    and here is the e-learning leadership group.

    Each fortnight we put together the e-learning round-up on the blog, it is well worth skimming through to see the latest discussions and links, [/blog/group/118255/all].

    Looking forward to working with you online.

    Just ask if I can help in any other way.

    Ngā mihi nui, nā Catriona.
