Team Leader - Year 2 Teacher
MEd (first class honours), Postgraduate Diploma in Education (Distinction) endorsed in e-Learning and Digital Technologies in Education. BEd.
This is my 14th year with Paremata School. I joined the Year 3 and 4 team in 2004, becoming the Team Leader in 2007. In 2016 I moved levels to lead the Pohutukawa (Year 1 and 2) team and teach in a Year 2 class, which I have loved. I have facilitated Wave TV, Paremata School's student television style news broadcasts, since it began in 2011. In 2013 and 2014 I took study leave to complete a Postgraduate Diploma in digital literacies and a MEd with an emphasis on multiliteracy learning through digital storytelling. My Master's thesis focussed on links between the creation of Wave TV and student multiliteracy learning. I am passionate about using digital and traditional technologies to enhance student learning.
