About Sharon

'Titiro whakamuri, kia pai ai tō titiro whakamua' Reflect on the past to understand the present and navigate the pathway ahead!

As an experienced rumaki reo Māori teacher and principal in the Māori medium schooling sector within Aotearoa NZ. My philosophy considers holistic education underpinned by language, culture, practices and values enable on-going emancipation and transformation through education for whānau, hapu and iwi. My masters research considered strengthening whānau engagement and succession in Kura-ā-iwi. The transformative praxis integral within Maori medium supports the revitalisation of te reo me ōna tikanga. Having scoped doctoral studies in 2017, I will attend a Phd writing retreat at Hopuhopu in January 2018. The Kaupapa Māori theory and methodology will be integral in this doctoral research journey.

'Ehara taku toa he toa takitahi, ēngari he toa takitini'

Success is not the individuals alone, but that of many who have supported & influenced the journey!

Research Supervised

Recently co-supervised a Master of Educational Leadership student to complete a 2 paper dissertation. Based on her grades and marks across her masters degree enrolment, she qualifies to graduate with First Class Honours.

Research Interests

Have expressed an interest in 2 research projects during 2015.

The first expression of interest was a research project which would have involved examining pedagogical approaches in the modern learning environment or innovative learning spaces now implemented witin the new primary school opened this year. However the initial scoping phase was unrealised when the lead professor was successful in gaining a new leadership role at a tertiary institution overseas.

The second expression of interest in a ECE research project this year was unsuccessful.
