I am married and have two young daughters. I am a Deputy Principal at Hobsonville Point Secondary School.
In 2011-2012 I was the Director of e-learning at Epsom Girls Grammar School. I was also the facilitator of the ICTs in English community on English Online. In 2010 I (briefly) held the position of Auckland Secondary English Facilitator at Team Solutions at the University of Auckland. I have taught English for 13 years in a range of secondary schools, most recently holding the position of Head of English Faculty at Auckland Girl’s Grammar School. I also work at a national level in assessment and curriculum in English as a part of the writing team for the redevelopment of the NCEA standards and as a marker for NCEA external standards. In 2009 I was a Ministry of Education e-fellow for which she undertook a study of how ICTs can be used to support literacy in and beyond the English classroom.
