About me

I am currently an RTLB working in Cluster 25 (Te Tai Hauāuru).  I cover is the Waimarino/Ruapehu/Taihape area.  There is as much driving as there is working!  I have, as part of becoming an RTLB, stepped back into the role of learner undertaking my Post Grad Diploma in Specialist Teaching.  Ultimately I would like to turn this into a Masters qualification.

This comes after nearly 30 years in the classroom teaching students from Year 4 through to Year 10 during that time.  I was also privileged to be part of the amazing team at CORE Education as a Learning with Digital Technologies facilitator.

My home base is in Whanganui where I live with my husband, Lo, and our two now adult kids, Caitlin and Callum.  Caitlin has completed her BA in Anthropology and Archaeology and is now spending time working off some of her student loan as an archivist and getting the travel bug out of her system before tackling Post Grad study.  Callum has recently applied for the NZ Police and is working for Countdown - as he has done for the two gap years he has taken.  He has also worked on getting the travel bug out of his system.

I value the learning that comes through online professional learning communities and look forward to learning from and with you all.

Brief description: I am an experienced teacher with plenty of room to learn myself. I am working to maintain that whole work/life balancing act.
