About me

I am currently the senior syndicate leader at Hampden Street School in Nelson.

Our focus is on bringing creativity and student voice to the forefront of learning. I feel that the key competencies and student-led learning are the keys to our students making meaningful contributions to their future communities. Having a focus on the upfront learning environment of our students can prevent an intervention based approach at the bottom of the cliff. 

We must be obvious and clear to students about what is valuable and publically acknowledge the learning in the process, not performance. Brave leadership is essential in this time of evolving education and what it could look like for our students.

After all, it is always about the students and helping them reach their full potential by becoming curious, adaptable and highly skilled learners.
