Professional profile

Ross was a classroom teacher for 13 years before taking on the role of site manager at Te Kete Ipurangi. This role involved both the technical management and development of the website, as well as working with teachers, principals, the Ministry of Education, managing a team of online editors, Māori language translator, web developers and information managers.

He is currently programme lead for the TKI Channel Support project.

Personal statement

I am passionate about learning – learning for the young, for the old and for everyone in between. I strongly believe that the tools we now have at our fingertips will radically change the way that we think about learning, and will challenge our beliefs in how schools operate.

Living in a small hillside house with views into Wellington Harbour and Cook Strait, I am a passionate Wellingtonian.

My interests are travel, music, motorcycling, brewing and the endless battle of maintaining a garden in what can, at times, be a harsh but lovely environment.
