NZPETeachercast Episode 17 – Flipping the tables!

A while back it was suggested that maybe someone should interview me on NZPETeachercast.. I thought nothing much of it until a very respected colleague of mine (Celia Fleck) emailed me through some interview questions – now I know how all these people feel when I randomly ask them to appear on the podcast! Celia asked some great questions and we spend some time focusing on the past, present and future, linking in with the theme from this years PENZ conference. We cover a range of things: my sporting background, flipped learning, growth mindset, My Study Series, the future of PE and a few other things. I hope you learn a little more about me!

NZPETeachercast Episode 16 – Twitter quizzes a beginning teacher

Todays episode is a unique one, because we put a request out for questions on Twitter and have presented them to a beginning teacher (actually in her second year). I must admit we received some really good questions!

Mallory is a fantastic Health and PE teacher from Kings College who has been innovating since she started her career 18 months ago. She is a big proponent of social media and co hosts the NZBT chat on Twitter with Georgia Dougherty. Mallory (and Georgia) were also awarded the Outstanding New Professional at the recent PENZ conference, recognition that was well deserved for both of them!

NZPETeachercast Episode 15 – Maori achievement through Sport in Education

Every so often you come across a teacher who is gifted with an amazing talent and ability to inspire the tamariki of NZ like no other. In the very brief time I have known him, Julian Reid falls into that category of educator – and I am blown away by his passion and enthusiasm for making a change. I have listened to this episode three times already and I regret only asking Julian 10 questions!

This episode of NZPTeachercast is well worth the listen!
