I have always wanted to be a person of influence. This started with studying performing arts and then film and television. I have now completed a four year conjoint bachelor of arts/bachelor of teacher early childhood degree and cannot wait to begin to impact children, parents, wider whānau (family) and communities, our nation of Aotearoa, New Zealand and maybe the world as well. At present I'm settling down and passionately commit to a fulltime teaching position. As my experience grows I will look at beginning postgraduate study on the road to completing a PHD that hopefully is significant for the early childhood sectors around the globe. I have a long term goal of becoming a teacher of teachers at a University in New Zealand. Through this journey I will always have an enthusiasm to learn, network, help people and will take every opportunity to incorporate my media and performing arts skills into my teaching and further exciting enterprisers.
An idea worth spreading
I have a dream of starting Early Childhood Research Centre, that is fully functioning centre along with being a community hub. It will explore teaching philosophies around the globe as an open source, on-going project in enhancing the quality of early childhood teaching. It will not be exclusively attached to any University and have an open door policy to work with all researchers and will not have a focus of competition but collaboration. The centre will incorporate high quality video recording which will not be hidden like surveillance camera's, but open an accessible, to children, parents, and researchers. The Centre will pay teachers the highest salaries of any teachers around the globe and will be free for families to send their children too. The key to solving problems with society around the world is bringing people together in a transparent, loving environments. Doing this with families as their children grow as part of communities is the very place to start and invest in.
