About me

I am a Facilitator for CORE Education based in Whangarei, Northland. My role involves delivering professional development to teachers in early childhood services and schools throughout Northland and Northern Auckland.

Prior to working at CORE, I was Head Teacher at Manaia Kindergarten.  As a teaching team we were well known nationally for our practice in integrating ICT for teaching and learning, and for engaging whānau and the wider community.

I became a Google Certified Teacher at the Google Teacher Academy(link is external) 2011, in Sydney. This has given me a vast amount of knowledge that I am able to share with teachers as they integrate Google Apps for Education into their classes/schools/centres.

    Hi Tania how do I join a blog I want to go on the 40 day te reo challenge?

    Hello Tania, Thanks for the message. I live in Cornwall which is in the South of the UK where I currently manage a Pre-School. I trained and worked in South Africa before moving here in 2003. I am registered with the New Zealand Teacher's Council and was granted a resident visa a week ago. One of the most immediately striking differences for me is that not a single person in the UK has asked me anything about ECE in South Africa and how it compares to practice here!
