My profile

Greetings from Aotearoa New Zealand. I moved to Dunedin from Christchurch 10 months ago and have found it a friendly, funky place to live. The further south you go, the friendlier the people.

Professional background

I homeschooled my children for 3 years, worked in adult literacy, worked with students with disabilities, and most recently have been working in educational administration. At the end of 2007 I spent 6 months working on the Routeburn Track - a stunning location and my first (and I suspect last) experience of working in the tourist industry. I also do contract work from home - administration for a small charitable trust, proofreading and editing, and research assistant tasks.


Parenting and relationships continue to provide my most challenging and life-changing educational experiences. It's hard work learning how to be a human.

My formal education includes a BA (in Education), a year learning beginner's Japanese, and a paper in Public Health.

My interests


This is a work in progress :-) 


Things I enjoy include:

  • reading
  • poetry (reading other people's, not writing my own)
  • gardening
  • yoga
  • sunshine
  • spending time with family and friends
  • exploring spirituality

Things I plan to do more of:

  1. Laugh
  2. Cry
  3. 'Waste' time - that is, not always be task focused
  4. Travel
  5. Say 'yes'
  6. Try new things

My wiki projects

My optional community service (learning contract) project

100px-L4C-small.png  Agreement
By signing this optional learning contract I will try to complete my training in basic wiki editing skills to achieve the status of a Wikibuddy. In return for this free training opportunity, I will give the gift of knowledge by donating or developing at least one free content resource licensed under a CC-BY-SA or CC-BY license which can be used by myself (and others) on WikiEducator.
Brief description of project
I'm hoping I'll get to work on projects with Sally Pairman.
Target date for completion
The end of April???
