B. Ed, Dip Tchg
As an accredited facilitator
I have established, over 10 years, strong relationships with principals, teachers, students and whānau. Through these relationships I have effectively encouraged and supported teachers to inquire into their own practice, and have fostered a continuous improvement in the way teachers view, and interact with, student achievement.
My experience includes
Mathematics facilitator: The building of content and pedagogical knowledge in mathematics Years 1-8, through the development of understanding of the connections between NZC, Learning Progression Frameworks and classroom programmes in relation to assessment and progressions for learning, is an important component of my work. I have supported middle leaders to improve systems and pedagogy, with both Professional Development and Programmes for Students initiatives. In order to raise teacher capability and student achievement, I have been the co-ordinator of the Southland Mathematics Symposium since 2014, presented at national and international conferences, and have collaborated on curriculum initiatives.
Digital Technology: The developing of awareness and the building of content and pedagogical knowledge in Digital Technology in Years 1-8, with a focus on Computational thinking, is also part of my work.
