About me

Kia Ora!  I'm a teacher of ESOL and English at Kapiti College. We have a thriving International Department - about 60 fee-paying students this year from HK, China, Japan, Brazil, Taiwan, Vietnam, Germany, Korea, Thailand; and a handful of migrant students (including one Russian!).  We teach a strong academic programme in ESOL - L3 ESOL for UE, L2 English for UE, L1 English for literacy ... with a focus on opening doorways into education for our students, both in NZ and in home countries.  I'd love to be working more with a community of ESOL teachers - especially doing inter-school moderation of L3 ESOL standards (and from next year, the new L4 EAP standards).  So looking forward to greeting and discussing, good colleagues :)
