Before that I was Deputy Principal of Appleby School.

Thanks so much for your time here on Wednesday. Our staff absolutely loved the PD and are very excited about sharing See Saw with our families. You really do connect so well with staff. We had a couple who were a bit concerned that it may all move a bit fast for them, and lo and behold I saw them all keeping up very nicely. Thanks for sharing your ability to read the room so well. Auckland Principal 2018

Your insight and knowledge has helped us to understand the strategic direction we will take to further integrate technology into classroom pedagogy and develop our strategic approach. Moreover, and perhaps most importantly, we appreciated your friendly, humorous and practical approach, the manner in which you spoke and worked with teachers allowed you to work effectively in our context." Cook Island MOE August 2015

Thank you for presenting your workshop tonight. Everyone I heard coming out of your workshop was buzzing. You inspire, enlighten and coax even the reluctant to give it a go. From all of our Mid Canterbury Fibre Connected School’s district THANK YOU for making the time to come down and shine some sunshine into classrooms during this miserable weather. Jan Anderson - March 2014

I particularly enjoyed Allanah King's workshop as there was opportunity to practise and it was humorous and practical. I have since experimented with many of the apps and plan to use many of them soon. Hereora Cluster Teacher Only Day April 2014
