Kia ora, Talofa Lava,
I am an early childhood professional development facilitator based in Christchurch. I have been involved in early childhood for 28 years and have worked in a variety of early childhood settings including working as a team leader in an infant and toddler setting. I have been involved in early childhood professional development for 10 years.
I am interested in infant and toddler curriculum, assesment, the integration of meaningful ICT in early childhood.
I have visited Samoa 5 times with my own family, and have been honoured to stay with a colleague and close friend’s fanau each time. The experience of being exposed to the language, culture and daily lives of my pasifika aiga has strengthened my understandings of Pasifika values, beliefs and ways of knowing, being and doing.
