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.

  • Documenting and Reflecting on Learning

    I am a strong proponent of encouraging learners of all ages to engage in reflective practice.

  • Video Game Design with Elementary Learners

    In order to support interest and passion driven learning (all – I mean all – of my students play video games) as well as address cross-curricular content area integration of language arts, science, and technology standards, I had my gifted elementary learners, grades 2 through 6, do a semester long project on video game design.

  • The Over Promotion of Failure

    Almost daily I see posts on social media by educators promoting the benefits of failure. It often seems that there is a push to intentional embed failure into instructional activities. This always rubs me the wrong way. Failure has almost universal negative connotations. It doesn’t feel good and sometimes it is extremely difficult, if impossible, […]

  • Quick and Easy

    Heard often from educators… “We need our students to be deep thinkers, have resiliency, and learn the importance of hard work!” Also heard from educators… “Why do you use that app?” “Because it is quick and easy!” If we want our students to have depth within their learning, we have to figure out when “quick ...

  • The Right Thing at the Wrong Time

    Listening to the audio version of  Tony Robbins’ book, “Unshakeable”, which talks about planning your financial future and investing (side note…do we have students reading and discussing these books in K-12? I sure could have benefitted from this a long time ago instead of racking up credit card debt! For another blog post…), he made ... [Read more...]

  • The Ability to Implement Feedback

    Through reffing basketball, I learned a lot of lessons that apply to my learning to this day.  The ability to be challenged in learning on something you believe is not as bad as being yelled at that you are wrong about something while you are running and sweating One lesson that I learned that was ...
