I am passionate about assistive technology and the ways that a variety of standard technologies can be used to support a wide range of students in any classroom. I believe that the combination of technology and universal design for learning has a huge potential to help many students who currently struggle to access the curriculum and remain engaged in education.
My teaching background is in secondary with the unusual combination of learning support with maths and geography. In my previous position I was the National Coordinator Assistive Technology at the Ministry of Education for a number of years. In that role I presented the CAT roadshows.
