I am excited to be part of the team at University of Otago College of Education. I am passionate about teaching and learning and enjoy working with our future teachers. I am primary trained and have taught across all curriculum areas from years 1 – 8.
My Doctoral Thesis was focused on how to ensure the teacher appraisal process linked directly to teacher practice and improving student outcomes.
To ensure I remain current with the issues at the ‘chalk-face’, I continue to teach in the classroom with real live children as often as I can create the opportunity.
