Who Am I?

I am a:

  • teacher
  • mother
  • musician
  • sci-fi fanatic
  • computer geek
  • geocacher
  • blogger
  • wannabe photog

I have a secret passion – well – maybe not so secret – teaching is not about feeding information into kids brains – it’s about creating a place where kids are inspired, enthused, excited about discovery and learning – so my goal as a teacher is to leave my kids wanting more and having the skills to find out more.

This year I’m a team leader – I’m really enjoying the new challenges I have as the leader of 6 classrooms – and the never-ending conversations I have with students not only those in my class but the others in my team.

It’s exciting to see kids motivated because our classroom and team is using 21st Century tools for their everyday teaching and learning.

This blog is really for my reflective practice – about things that have worked (or not worked) in my classroom and to share these with others in my PLN.

I should also mention that I’m a Kiwi living in the North Island of New Zealand (just north of Wellington).
