As an Accredited Facilitator
I have supported teachers and leaders in primary, intermediate and secondary schools with science. This has included supporting learners with its literacy demands and embedding culturally responsive pedagogy into teachers’ practice. I began this work in 2011 using inquiry to determine the needs of a focus group of learners, enabling teachers to develop new ways of increasing outcomes for students, especially Māori and Pasifika.
My experience includes
Facilitator with Te Tapuae o Rehua working in secondary schools since 2012 in the Central South region.
Facilitator for Science Learning Hub in primary/ intermediate schools.
Teaching science and biology in secondary schools in New Zealand and abroad from Years 7 to 13, including head of department.
Reviewing online courses in primary science for the Open Polytechnic.
Writing science resources published on TKI for Māori medium pūtaiao Levels 1-4 and Levels 5-8 in Physics and Biology.
