I am a passionate educator with experience in Montessori education and state education. I am interested in the role of the teacher mentor, education for peace, nurturing teachers, lifelong education and the promotion of the child.
I have experience in teaching, as chair of board of trustees, being a principal, starting a school, international schools, school change and social change through education. My wife and two sons now live in Auckland.
