Hamilton, New Zealand
Not much to say really! Born and brewed in Leeds just like Tetley’s beer! Moved to the Yorkshire Dales so I could spend more time exploring the underworld of life – caves, cavers and the like! Met Nigel who is now my husband, alter ego, other half etc and we have two sons. I speak French fluently, my Spanish is improving rapidly as I teach it, and I have enough German to get by. I enjoy photography, walking in the hills, playing on the beach, caving, reading and being with my family. We needed a change of scenery, to get out of a rut and challenge ourselves so decided that life might be better/different down under so headed out to NZ in January 2008. Eight years on we are not regretting our decision to move. For seven years I worked in an all girls Anglican school teaching Spanish, organising Outdoor camps and exploring the use of technology to support teaching and learning. In 2014 I was awarded an efellowship with Core Education and in July 2015 I started work as a facilitator for the Connected Learning Advisory which is a Ministry of Education funded initiative, delivered by Core Education.
