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.

There have been a plethora of lessons I learned through these experiences that have served me well as a teacher. As part of […]

  • Big Impact from the Smallest Interactions

    I was listening to a student who had struggled in school share an important story.  She shared that every single day she was in school, a teacher, who had never taught her at any point in her academic career, would say “hi” to her and address her by her name.  What seems like a simple ...

  • Developing Wisdom in the Service of Learners

    This quote from Barry Schwartz always makes me think: Rules and incentives may improve the behavior of those who don’t care, though they won’t make them wiser. But in focusing on the people who don’t care—the targets of our rules and incentives—we miss those who do care. We miss those who want to do the ... [Read more...]
