I am the Librarian and Careers Advisor at King's High School in Dunedin. A long standing passion for school libraries, the people who use them and the people who run them has led me to being involved in SLANZA, for many years now, at a local and national level.
I am an avid reader, and have been all my life. My reading has informed my life, been a joy, a comfort and is something that makes me who I am. I am a reading evangelist as the students at our school will attest!
I enjoy using web technology, sharing my knowledge with students and staff at school, getting involved in projects which use ICT and helping people get web savvy. I like helping people get more confident using the tools the internet provides.
School Librarians often work in isolation and I see SLANZA as being a community where ideas can be shared, skills learnt, professionalism encouraged and an organisation which provides many and varied PD opportunities for it's members.
In my other life I bake and can often be found in my kitchen. I love to entertain friends and enjoy being entertained. I am passionate about my garden, I love movies, wine, craft and have a busy social life which only encourages my adoration of the coffee bean.
