Teacher and writer from Aotearoa New Zealand.
I am Head of Science at a small secondary school, with Physics as my specialist subject.
I don't have much time to write, but I also craft and upcycle. I mostly sew, making items from found and thrifted materials.
I am a constructivist in my teaching and learning approach, and I encourage creativity, metacognition and reflection in my classroom. Inquiry learning is important in my classroom and department; we encourage students to choose their own topics and learning questions, and pursue their own answers. I believe it's important that students learn that experiments don't have fixed outcomes!
