Overseas Trained Teacher, Health Education, Physical Education and Home Economics Facilitator
TTC, Dip. Sports Studies and Leisure Management
As an accredited facilitator
I have spent sixteen years developing PLD experiences and in-school one-on-one support across the schooling sector - mainly involved in, but not limited to, the HPE learning space.
I have been both a facilitator and creator of PLD responses that are evidence-based, take an inquiry perspective, and are responsive to teachers’ needs and that of their akonga.
My experience includes
Health Education, Physical Education and Home Economics Facilitation for Primary and Secondary, that enables teachers to develop authentic programmes with a deeper understanding of the New Zealand Curriculum based on inquiry and underpinned by effective pedagogy and quality assessment.
Syndicate and Departmental reviews - mentoring HODs/HOFs and initiating structures for rigorous self-review processes.
Supporting schools to develop robust processes for the Consultation of their Health Education Programme (a two year requirement under the Education Act) that involves a culturally responsive whole school approach.
Other PLD experiences include NZC Facilitation and implementation - developing a school curriculum and Effective EOTC Management in schools.
