Professional experience

SInce 2015 Maria has worked for CORE as a facilitator in the Manaiakalani Outreach Programme. She is based across Kootuitui ki Papakura Outreach cluster in South Auckland.Maria uses professional learning groups and in-class facilitation to cause changes to practice and pedagogy. She uses pedagogy frameworks to challenge and cause shift while also supporting and collaborating with leaders and teachers as learners in the process. Maria accesses evidence-based resources for the classroom and models how to use these in their contexts so to encourage increased student agency. She fosters conversations using learning talk that draws out strengths in teachers’ existing practice and encourages new learning to be shared via collaborative tools. 

Prior to working at CORE Maria has taught science and horticulture before moving to HOD Science. She has been a senior school leader in a multisite school, with a responsibility for NCEA quality assurance and academic leadership.

Personal statement

I have a keen interest in how things work, why, and how we can make them better. Learning in the digital sphere seems a natural fit. I find it exciting to see teachers as learners, using and improving what works well in a collaborative environment and they in turn find it satisfying to see significant student agency and progress in learning. I have enjoyed teaching and being part of communities in Kaikohe, Palmerston North and Auckland.
