About me

Kia Ora. I have had a varied, interesting and exciting teaching career. I started teaching in 1992 as an English teacher in a Kura Kaupapa Maori. I went on, teaching mainly in rural area schools. I also spent time teaching art and science in a Kura Mana Maori. I am now teaching in a rural area school as a NE/Y1/2 Senior teacher. Teaching in rural areas has its own set of unique challenges. Collegial sharing and support is much harder and I rely so much on sites like this to try and keep in touch with the latest in educational developments and to share and get inspiration from other teachers. I still love my time in the classroom and wouldn't change it.

    Kia ora Karen and welcome to the Blended e-learning Literacy group.

    This is a group to support the e-Learning aspect of raising student achievement in literacy.

    Do use the Group discussion navigation tab to join in and/or initiate discussion about the use of e-Learning to support literacy. Share your favourite tools or readings through the Group bookmarks or expand on this in the Group blog.

    Remember, the best way to learn something is to teach it, so be active in this space and contribute your ideas to enrich the practice of all.

    Looking forward to working with you online.

    Ngā mihi nui, nā Anne
