Hi and thanks for stopping by.
I am Stephanie and I teach year 7/8 students in Wellington, New Zealand. I started this blog in 2011 as a way to document my experiences of completing the graduate diploma in teaching and decided to keep writing as a way to connect with other teachers in New Zealand and around the world.
I blog on education issues and my experience of being a teacher in the New Zealand school system. I’m really passionate about integrating digital technology into the classroom and using social media to expand learning opportunities for both students and teachers. I also blog on educational issues in the New Zealand media when they come up.
I try to post 3-4 times a week. This blog currently gets about 100 hits a day and typically attracts about 100 comments a month. Please feel free to share anything you’ve read that you find useful. Bloggers like to share, honest.
What else about me? Well, here’s ten random things:
I own almost one hundred cookie cutters (which I hardly ever use).
I write all my text messages in full sentence form.
I have a really unhealthy twitter obsession and am always online.
I am the short person in my family.
I lived in South Korea for four years teaching English.
I eat peanut butter straight out of the jar.
I never keep up with my RSS reader.
I want to make every recipe from my Sky High cookbook.
I love K-pop, pho, karaoke, ice-cream, Glee and movies that excel at being really awful.
I often wear mismatched socks.
