Professional Relationships

  • Engage in reciprocal, collaborative learning-focused relationships with:
    • learners, families and whānau
    • teaching colleagues, support staff and other professionals
    • agencies, groups and individuals in the community.
  • Communicate effectively with others.
  • Actively contribute, and work collegially, in the pursuit of improving my own and organisational practice, showing leadership, particularly in areas of responsibility.
  • Communicate clear and accurate assessment for learning and achievement information.


Professional Learning Development

As part of my passion for technology and interest in ePedagogy, I worked with the Papatoetoe High School ePedagogy team to offer a "YouTube Channel Set Up" workshop to interested staff members.

Through this workshop, I was able to connect with other educators and share my experiences working with YouTube as a platform for flipped and differentiated learning.

Five teachers from varying backgrounds participated in the workshop and I hope to run it again in the future.

Collaborative School Visits

As a requirement of MTEL, I have made a number of visits to different schools in order to broaden my understanding of what learning looks like in a variety of contexts. Schools I visited include Māngere College, Papakura High School, and Hobsonville Point Secondary School.

Each school had a very different way of doing things, and I appreciated the opportunity to gain insight into the very different ways that learners can succeed.

In 2019, I would especially like to visit Albany Senior High School, and Rosehill College.

South Auckland Raising Māori Achievement Collective Hui

I was very privileged to have the opportunity to go to a SARMAC hui and learn from other educators and students who identify as Māori. It gave me insight into what "succeeding as Māori" really looks like, according to Māori who are already succeeding in their goals.
