These sessions were run by Jake Wills with support from Kate Jensen

Jake Wills

Jake has been teaching secondary maths in New Zealand since 2013. He has twice been awarded the Ernest Duncan award from NZAMT for contribution to teaching of mathematics and is the creator of NZGrapher, an online graphing tool designed for the New Zealand curriculum which is used by over 400,000 users every year. He is currently director of IT at Kāpiti College and in the past has been an Assistant Principal, head of Maths and a dean.

Kate Jensen

Kate has been teaching in Primary Schools for 35 years, mostly in the Year 7/8 area. She has a great interest in the transition from Primary to Secondary as she knows a successful transition can set the ākonga up for a successful chapter at college. She is working closely with a couple of Primary Schools as they track cohorts of students through college and last year supported a session for Primary School Teachers on the new Aotearoa/NZ Histories Curriculum held at our Marae. Currently she is on the Senior Management Team, Year 9 Dean and teaching Social Studies.
