About me

Initially I studied to be a Marine Biologist but I always had fond memories of assembling computers for friends and assisting people with software installs/ virus removal etc. Teaching came about as I was working part time as a EOTC specialist, taking school students on excursions for Duke of Edinburgh award programmes and conducting outdoor activities. In 2006, I completed my Bachelor of Education degree and worked for two years in a private school in Mumbai , India. Subsequently I moved to Wellington, NZ and completed a Grad.dip in Teaching, to teach in NZ. My first job in NZ was at Wanganui Collegiate teaching Science, teaching Junior Mathematics and Digital Technology. After 2 years, I moved to Samuel Marsden Whitby in Wellington and taught Digital Technology for 6 years. Currently I am the Outreach Coordinator for Engineering and Computer Science at Victoria University Wellington since April 2017. My focus is teacher Professional Development in the areas of DT¬† | HM curriculum area and establishing lunchtime / afterschool codeclubs, STEM (STEAM or whatever you want to call it) events and classroom technology integration projects. My current Masters Thesis is looking at Students’ intention to learn digital technologies at year 9.
