Classroom teacher since 2000. Digital Classroom teacher since 2008. Visual Art specialist and IT facilitator since 2014. Leadership experience in primary school (team planning, Visual Arts, Mathematics, IT). Taught all levels of primary in general education. Now teach across the school from Kindy-Y6 since 2014. Certified in Digital and Collaborative Learning through Mind Lab. NZ curriculum and IB PYP.
My teaching style is very co-constructivist, it has to be really because I facilitate in an inquiry based Classroom and I can never hope to keep up with the pace that my students move at. I take care of the big ideas and scaffold the learning steps while they negotiate how it looks and the journey we go on. They learn to take ownership of their learning very early on with me and develop their intrinsic motivation. To sum it up - we work together to facilitate measurable progress in learning.
