About me

I live in Warkworth and have worked in ESOL for more years than I care to admit! 

I currently work in professional development, resource writing, facilitate the Secondary ESOL Online community and teach at Massey University.

Between 2010 and 2014  I was a member of a team that designed and built the ELLINZ Online blended learning programme for the Ministry of Education, now known as the Accelerated English Language Learning programme. I was responsible for the development of all content and between 2012 and 2014 led the team as ePrincipal. This online blended learning programme provided ESOL lessons for students in years 7 to 13 and gave me the opportunity to build skills in the area of online content creation and effective delivery in an online environment.

I have developed teaching and assessment resources for ESOL and EAP standards for the Ministry of Education and NZQA.  Most recently I have produced summative assessment resources for English language unit standards and am offering in workshops and online support for teachers via my website, the English Language Resource Centre
