My name is Emma Kingston (nee Winder) and I am a teacher from Auckland. I am currently working as Deputy Principal at St Mary’s School in Northcote.
Prior to teaching I studied psychology and practiced therapy with children on the autism spectrum. Following this, I completed my teaching diploma and have been a passionate educator ever since!
I am particularly interested in what education, schooling and learning looks like now and in the future. I like to think about how our education system and teaching at a classroom level needs to be re-imagined to meet the needs of learners. I am also learning to be an effective leader and am interested in how we can use knowledge from other sectors to inform how we operate in schools.
