My Experience

Professional Learning and Development (PLD) needs to be useful and practical while supporting and challenging our educational professionals. As a facilitator, I bring energy and enthusiasm to Science and have a strong interest in supporting teachers to develop confidence and capability in teaching science at primary school. Development of a collaborative partnership encourages the growth of teacher confidence and supports the development of reflection, which enhances the teaching of science.

Suiting the needs of the school is my focus with a conscientious approach. Being a lifelong learner, seeking out opportunities to learn and to challenge my own understanding, allows me to provide critical and relevant processes for supporting teachers, schools, family, whānau and communities to improve outcomes for all.  

Nāku te rourou, nāu te rourou, ka ora ai te iwi.
