Growing leaders’ capabilities is my key focus, while challenging and building on their strengths and beliefs to enhance and sustain schoolwide knowledge and systems.

As a passionate facilitator and educator with deep pedagogical knowledge of the New Zealand Curriculum document, my expertise has developed through significant teaching and learning experiences in a range of contexts and capacities that includes many years of teaching and leadership roles in New Zealand, as well as international teaching experience in Canada and Hong Kong.

Working collaboratively, we can provide professional learning and develop the capacity of school leaders, teachers and whānau to build an authentic localised curriculum responsive to the needs, aspirations, strengths and resources of their particular community. I model qualities of relational trust and am committed to equity and social justice.  

Commitment to bi-cultural partnerships in Aotearoa New Zealand is something I honour and value, using my skills and expertise to facilitate effective learning through Ka Hikatia and Tātaiako. All the while, deepening schools’ culturally responsive pedagogy and practice to ensure success for all Māori students.
