I have been a teacher at Matarau School since 1998 and I still love every day on the job, always a new challenge:) My passion for Literacy in the classroom has always been a real area of focus, especially in looking at how Literacy is evolving!
I was introduced to the Tai Tokerau Literacy Association 1n 2012 and have never looked back on being part of a local team that is committed to enhancing, improving, providing, and bringing Literacy PD to the North.
I was fortunate enough to visit an NZLA Annual Meeting, being too vocal at the time with lots of ideas, and that has started this journey into being part of the Exec of which I was part between 2018 and 2021.
The other skill I bring to the team is working in the area of IT advice and support and helping each council to build capacity in this area. I’m not really a tech wizard but have a curiosity about how things work and finding solutions to problems.
This organisation has incredible potential, nationally and in the regions to promote Literacy.
I look forward to serving and supporting the NZLA to grow.
