I am a passionate educator who is committed to developing a high-performing education system that reflects equity and quality outcomes for all learners. Accordingly, social justice is a moral imperative that has underpinned my work as a teacher and a senior leader in both primary and secondary school settings.

The sense of personal and professional responsibility I feel to reduce disparities between Māori and non-Māori students informed my decision to join the Te Kotahitanga Professional Development Team as a Professional Development Specialist in 2011.

Since 2014 I have worked as Academic Director and facilitator in Kia Eke Panuku: Building on Success where I have continued to focus on equity and quality education outcomes for all learners, with a particular focus on Māori students.
