My background is in Māori medium education programmes. Revitalisation of Te Reo, tikanga and governance roles in education, addressing the learning needs of specifically Māori children, using Māori epistemology and ways of learning are some of my areas of interest.           

I am involved in the Undergraduate, Graduate diploma and Post Graduate programmes within the Faculty of Education, specializing in the te reo Māori and Māori medium fields of education.     

I have completed a Masters degree in Māori medium experiences of participants in a mainstream secondary school. My future research interests are focussed around the Governance and leadership roles of ensuring  effective learning experiences in Māori medium education.
