My Experience

Mathematics Education for both children and adults is an exciting area to work in as a facilitator; carrying responsibility and moral purpose. Supporting teachers to further develop content, pedagogical content knowledge and to make better connections with whānau in order to provide better learning opportunities for all ākonga, is challenging and rewarding work. Assisting teachers to excel in teaching and a strong desire to see students empowered to learn is what motivates me and inspires me to keep learning. As Avis Glaze (Ontario) once said: “The kids can’t wait”.
