I am the ePrincipal for the VLN Primary online schools and foundation Council Member and past Secretary for the VLN Community. I have previously worked with Core Education as a facilitator and mentor in the VPLD programme, and ePrincipal of TaraNet Secondary Cluster.
My experiences with elearning stem back to my teacher training days, when in 1997 I was accepted into Massey University’s first fully online Bachelor of Teaching Programme. I found that learning online not only opens up access and opportunities to learning but can be just as rich and interactive as face to face education. Since this time I have been instilled with a passion for elearning that has continued to shape my professional pathways.
