My family and I have lived in South Auckland all our lives. Philip and I have three children. Olivia, 24, Gretta, 22 and Dominic, 20.
I have taught in a variety of schools throughout Auckland. Prior to coming to Clevedon School I worked alongside Professor John Hattie at the University of Auckland and prior to that I led the Year 7/8 Department at Baradene College in Remuera.
My previous role was one of leading professional development for teachers around implementing our revised New Zealand Curriculum and the National Standards. I have also spent time in New Zealand, Australia and throughout Asia presenting with John Hattie on his research about raising student achievement. It is a passion of mine to assist teachers in ensuring that our students are both progressing and achieving to their potential across the curriculum.
