I am excited to have been appointed by the CPPA to the .5 position of Principal Mentoring and Support. I believe this type of support is critical for all school leaders, especially given the challenges and issues we are currently facing here in Canterbury.

I hope to bring a wide range of skills and experiences to the role and I look forward to working with you, as the highest quality education for our children is, and must always be, our greatest priority. After 14 years as a school principal, over 9 years as a leadership and management adviser, and having completed a Master of Educational Leadership, I have developed a real interest in all facets of leadership, particularly educational leadership.

I enjoy working with leaders motivating and encouraging them as they re-energise their leadership skills and strengthen their personal capabilities and competencies.
