Nicola Wells

Nicola teaches junior Science and Biology at Tamaki College. This year she is an Across School CoL and is aiming to share Manaiakalani expert practices in literacy and science across schools to help ease the transition from intermediate and prepare students for secondary. She believes rewindable, visible, engaging and creative learning environments help students to learn deeply and at their own pace, any time and anywhere.

Donna Yates

I live in the beautiful Coopers Beach in the far North of New Zealand. I am a teacher who is currently working for Manaiakalani as an Outreach Facilitator in the Te Hiku Cluster in the Far North. This is my second year in the position. Before this, I was a Mathematics and Statistics facilitator for 15 years working for University of Auckland, Cognition Education, and Donna Yates Consulting. I have two children that are 17 and 19.

Kariene Gardiner

Kariene teaches in a collaborative Year 1-2 classroom at Ohaeawai Primary here in the Kaikohekohe network. Last year Kariene worked within the MIT program to extend her passion for accelerating writing within her classroom and across the wider Kaikohekohe network. She created a resource to help teachers both within and beyond the Kaikohekohe Network to enhance and accelerate teachers practice within writing.

Kerry is a Manaiakalani Outreach Facilitator primarily focused on secondary schools across the Te Hiku Cluster and the Kaikohekohe Cluster.

In 2015 she was awarded a Woolf Fisher Lead Teacher Scholarship and completed her Masters in Education. She also holds a Post Grad in E-Learning and Digital Technologies with Canterbury University. Kerry is passionate about putting students at the heart of learning by supporting teachers' practices to utilise digital technologies.

Alicia Craig

Alicia is a DP and teaches in a Year 3 - 4 collaborative space. In 2017 she was part of the Manaiakalani Innovative Teachers where she inquired into Collaboration, Digital Tools and Visible Learning. This led her to applying for a sabbatical for 2018.
