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.

  • Watching Them Learn

    I have been very intentional in the public school teaching jobs I have chosen. First I was a PE teacher, now I am a gifted education teacher. I chose these jobs because I believe in active, hands-on, and joyful learning. I love being able to provide them with learning experiences not based on preparing them […]

  • Student Choice and Voice Can Equal the Best Day Ever

    As is true for a lot of progressive educators, I have a belief in and attempt to practice the implementation of student voice and choice: Sometimes this means fully letting go of the reins so learners become completely self-directed. I had the privilege of witnessing this in action one afternoon last week. I use the […]

  • Growing from the Contributions of the Learners in Our Classrooms

    Currently, I am teaching a course with UPenn titled “Building a Strong Foundation for Universal Design for Learning and Innovation,” which is part of a UDL certificate program taught with my friend and colleague, Dr. Katie Novak. (You can sign up for the spring 2022 session here if you are interested!) One of the things […]

  • “Same Thing” or “Something?”

    Here is a question I think is important to consider.     When students walk out of our schools, are our hopes that they all leave that experience good at the “same thing” or “something?”     For example, does the work done in schools focus on all our students being good at math, or […]

  • Celebrating People Across the Hallway

    Have you ever felt professional jealousy toward you for an achievement you made? I guess you probably have, and I can say that I have felt that myself.  It takes away some of the “shine” of the moment (or longer) of being proud of something you have accomplished.  Bluntly, that feeling sucks. Now let’s flip […]
