Biography

Naomi is a senior lecturer at the University of Otago, College of Education. She is passionate about exploring students’ relationships with mathematics and how these relationships change over students’ mathematical journeys. She is the Secondary Programme Coordinator and teaches and researches in primary and secondary mathematics education and curriculum. In 2018, Naomi was the national recipient of the Teacher Education Forum of Aotearoa New Zealand’s Emerging Teacher Educator award. Prior to this role, she was a secondary school mathematics teacher in New Zealand and the Sultanate of Oman. Naomi’s teacher registration and continuing contact with the teaching community through research, educating pre-service teachers and professional development are important aspects of her identity. She was in direct contact with mathematics associations throughout New Zealand in her work as the Bevan Werry speaker for the New Zealand Mathematics Association.
