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).

    Hello Dragonsinger,
    My name is Catina Magby and I am a student from University of South Alabama. I am taking a media class in Dr.Strange class so that is how I found your blog.I fine it very interesting that you have a great passion for your students. I believe that is the way all teachers should remain .I agree that as a teacher we should inspire students to grasp the concepts for themselves.That way that learn more.I really enjoyed your post and look forward to really more.

    My name is Amy Adolph. I am a faculty member with the University of Phoenix doing a collaborative research project on how social media can improve online teaching. I noticed on one of your blogs you mentioned a survey had been done by twitter. Could you share that information with me, and any additional articles that might help with our research?

    Kind Regards,
    Amy Adolph
