Rā 225  Rāmere, 12 o Here-turi-kōkā

I nearly didn’t go for a run this morning. Lots to do before getting to the edchatnz conference and feeling very sad after last night’s news. But I’m glad I did.  I’ve decided that my hash tag for the day is going to be #theworldisbeautiful.

I made sure that I took the time this morning to notice the little things. The things that we take for granted.  The things that we forget when we are bogged down in other “stuff” over which we have no control.  I cannot possibly understand how desperate and sad someone must feel to want to leave our beautiful world. But it happens far too often to far too many young men especially in NZ.  My heart is heavy. But our world is beautiful. We should hold on to that.

Teacher of Languages first and foremost but passionate about learning and teaching. I have been learning how to blend technology into my teaching for the last twenty years and worked for seven years supporting colleagues to build their skills and confidence using digital technologies as part of their teaching and learning. In 2014 I was honoured to be awarded an eFellowship from Core Education which was a challenging and fun year. I am now a Connected Learning Advisor with Core Education. In that role I support school leaders in their planning and implementation of technology. I love being in the outdoors and spend as much of my time as I can in the bush, by the ocean and on mountains.
