My Experience

The roles of assistant, deputy and acting principal of a secondary school, over a period of 12 years, have taught me to understand the multifaceted challenges facing leaders and teachers in a time of change.

It is a priority to prepare our teachers and learners to be digitally fluent. I moved into facilitation to help build better outcomes for learners across New Zealand by empowering leaders, teachers, and learners to succeed in their learning - particularly in using digital technologies - alongside empowering them to become confident, connected and actively involved lifelong learners.

Both nationally and internationally, my webinars, blogs and YouTube tutorials are followed and acknowledged, and I enjoy a strong educational social media presence and reputation as a lifelong learner.
