As a principal and leader in primary schools Audrie has been in positions of influence for nearly 30 years. From small rural communities to urban schools Audrie has used her leadership flair building teams and promoting learning relationships. As project manager for a schooling improvement cluster and a nationwide EOTC programme (LEARNZ) she has worked and coached alongside many teachers, both face to face and in virtual settings.
Returning to Christchurch from working in the central North Island, she has experienced, negotiated, and led through the day-to-day stresses of schools experiencing thousands of earthquakes and an educational network review which closed her school. Although school closure is a rough experience Audrie’s leadership skill enabled the school community, whānau and students to transition with easy hearts.
Recently as a Christchurch based Resource Teacher of Learning and Behaviour, she has been part of teams coaching and supporting teachers in schools and classrooms in the Eastern suburbs of Christchurch and on the Chatham and Pitt Islands.
A long-time literacy leader Audrie has spent time as a Literacy Advisor working for UCEducation Plus and has always had a passion for reading and writing.
Audrie is Christchurch-based and able to travel and work with teams in schools and kura throughout the South Island.
