About me

A mother of two girls - and still reminding them as to who the parent is in our relationship! I am the youngest of seven. While the rest of my siblings were raised in the East Coast, my education was in Lower Hutt. I went from Naenae College on to Teachers college and the rest - as they say - is history! From 2004-2006, the three Kura in Wellington clustered together on an ICT PD contract. During that time, I was .4 DP and .6 PF of the cluster. In 2007 I resumed my DP role full-time and then joined CORE Education as a national ICT PD facilitator. I was in a split .5 DP and .5 NSSF from 2007 to 2011. 

In 2012 I stepped away from TAWKKM to take a two year leave of absence from this role. Mid 2013 however, I resigned from this job after 16 years as DP and welcomed a full-time role with CORE Education as part of the BeL/LwDT team in the Te Toi Tupu consortium

In July of 2017, I will have been with CORE for 10 years. A new year, changes afoot and looking fwd to working with some single entity schools and Communities of Learning (CoL's)
