Kia ora and welcome to my Manaiakalani Google Class On Air episodes for 2019. I am currently leading a Year 2 team, in an innovative learning environment at Pt England School in Auckland, New Zealand. I have been teaching since 2010, and have enjoyed the last 3 years working in a 1:1 iPad class.
As I work in a team of four classes, some of my lessons may be presented to the whole cohort, while others will take place in small-groups that share individual learning goals.
If you would like to contact me about any of my lessons or activities, please contact me via the links below.
