My Experience

As a leader, facilitator and coach for the Institute of Professional Learning: Te Whai Toi Tangata at the University of Waikato I provide professional learning and development support for principals, teachers and students that align with the New Zealand Curriculum and Ministry of Education initiatives. My passion to think differently about education and how we can make a difference for all has been illuminated through my experiences as a primary teacher, facilitator of professional learning and a community educator. My strengths are:

  • providing professional learning development (PLD) for teachers, leaders and students with a specific focus on raising all student achievement
  • ensuring NZC is central to all professional learning and development and models effective pedagogy and teaching as inquiry
  • supporting school teacher and principals to embed e-learning, financial capabilities, assessment for learning, culturally responsive practice and NZ curriculum standards to improve outcomes for all students
  • engaging in consultancy opportunities to promote and provide leadership advice and support to schools and to students in schools
  • facilitating workshops, courses and symposia to meet learner needs
  • delivering in-depth and short term leadership development mahi in schools.

Threading through all of my work, professional development and learning is building leadership capability and capacity.
