About me

I was a high school English teacher for ten years before retraining in primary after my three daughters were born.  I've been lead teacher of maths, and run a digital unit. Now I'm DP at an intermediate where I'm in charge of curriculum and assessment, lead teacher for literacy and the person who fixes the computers. I want to get teachers passionate about e_learning but know that things like national standards and hardware problems and limits cause a lot of road blocks for people.

I have been part of three ict pd clusters, the last one as a "internal" facilitator or maybe administrator and milestone writer and collator. For Term 3 and 4 2013 I was seconded to be a BeL facilitator for Te Toi Tupu for .4 of my week. 

I am a past chairperson of the AP/DP Network, co-starter for #connectedrotorua and cohost of #educamprotovegas and Eduignite Rotorua.  We also held the inaugural Educamp Minecraft.

Deep learning occurs through experiential, authentic, interactive, collaborative instructional processes.  If deep learning is desired for teacher professional development, then it should reflect best practices for teaching and learning. Professional learning must focus on creating safe […]

  • A Socratic Seminar for Elementary Learners

    Socratic seminars have been around, obviously, since the days of Socratics. I believe they are an underutilized but powerful instructional strategy. In the Socratic method of education, teachers engage students by asking questions that require generative answers. Ideally, the answers to questions are not a stopping point for thought but are instead a beginning to […]

The Principal of Change

  • Dreams to Norms

    Just thinking… My daughter just turned 7 months old. Watching her grow up has been fascinating, and when I FaceTime her on the road, she reaches out now, trying to touch my face. It melts me every single time. As I was looking at her, I was overcome with the idea of how when I ... [Read more...]

  • Flipping the Script; 3 Obstacles to Innovation Viewed Differently

    Arguments against innovative practices abound.  Innovation comes from not only dealing with roadblocks but recognizing when to turn these same roadblocks into the conversation on how we can do things differently and much better. Think about the way you (and others) ask questions. Is it in pursuit of moving forward or the hidden reality of ... [Read more...]

  • Intent vs. Impact

    Speaking to a group of principals, one of the participants, thanked me for my time, and gave a very elegant “call-to-action” to the group.  It was not simply discussing what I talked about, but what they needed to do to move forward. One of her quotes that resonated with me was, “Intention is not good ... [Read more...]
