About me

I was a Year 5-6 teacher, teaching and learning in Otara, Auckland, then I was the eLearning lead teacher at Amesbury school in Wellington. I moved to Pukerua Bay School as Assistant Principal and took up the Principal role in 2015.

eLearning, news shows and moviemaking are my favourites Laughing

In 2010 (as a Core Education eFellow) I explored the use of cameras in the classroom looking specifically at:

  • Self Reflection
  • Foucauldian notions of self-monitoring
  • Authentic audience

As a teacher I explored:

  • Minimally Invasive Education in a NZ Primary School Context
  • Creating News Shows in a Primary School Context
  • Raising the quality of teaching and learning via collaborative online relationships using a variety of tools such as blogs, shared documents, google sites, skype, edmodo etc with classes within NZ and Australia.

As principal I try to foster community learning in authentic contexts.
