In my work, I aim to challenge the pervasive and historical discourses that perpetuate educational disparities for Māori students and disrupt these through school leadership and reform initiatives. In my research, I combine understandings from kaupapa Māori and critical theories and I have published widely in this field. In 2016, I was a recipient of the New Zealand Honour, Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to education and to Māori in education.
Kaupapa Māori and Critical theories; Culturally Responsive Methodologies; Relational and Responsive inclusion; School and Home-community relationships; Cultural Relationships for Responsive Pedagogy.
