About me

I was a high school English teacher for ten years before retraining in primary after my three daughters were born.  I've been lead teacher of maths, and run a digital unit. Now I'm DP at an intermediate where I'm in charge of curriculum and assessment, lead teacher for literacy and the person who fixes the computers. I want to get teachers passionate about e_learning but know that things like national standards and hardware problems and limits cause a lot of road blocks for people.

I have been part of three ict pd clusters, the last one as a "internal" facilitator or maybe administrator and milestone writer and collator. For Term 3 and 4 2013 I was seconded to be a BeL facilitator for Te Toi Tupu for .4 of my week. 

I am a past chairperson of the AP/DP Network, co-starter for #connectedrotorua and cohost of #educamprotovegas and Eduignite Rotorua.  We also held the inaugural Educamp Minecraft.

  • Wonder, Explore, Lead

    I tweeted this quote from my book, “The Innovator’s Mindset“: “Our responsibility isn’t solely to teach memorization or mechanics of a task but to spark a curiosity that empowers students to learn on their own. To wonder. To explore. To become leaders. …if students leave school less curious than when they started, we have failed ... [Read more...]

  • Every “Best Practice” in Education Was Once an Innovation

    Adam Grant recently tweeted this article, focusing on the importance of theory and delving into the unknown for science. It is a fascinating read, and the end quote stuck out to me: Some of the most interesting scientific work gets done when scientists develop bizarre theories in the face of something new or unexplained. Madcap ... [Read more...]
