I am the Director of Learning and Innovation at Emmaus Catholic College in Kemps Creek, managing the 1:1 iPad program, blended classes, training and support for students and staff and technology integration. I work within the TAS faculty, specialising in Building and Construction, Design and Technology and Industrial Tech-Timber.
I am MADLY trying to juggle teaching/life, keeping balance is difficult at times- especially since I have had the opportunity to write my first text book- a DOT POINT text for HSC Design and Technology, following that up with a Prelim text!!
Highlights of the last few years as an educator have been: presenting at ISTE in Texas 2013, heading to San Francisco to present at EdmodoCon in 2014 and being part of an awesome professional community of avid TeachMeet-ers in Sydney.
As well as these formal roles within school I am a passionate member of the IIATE (Institute of Industrial Arts Technology Education), supporting the IIATE by co-ordinating the Western Sydney Branch Meetings, ESNET and the IIATE website – and generally a do-er of stuff 🙂
I am stupid busy ALL the time and I love it that way!!
