I am lucky to live in beautiful, historic Northland, the long, thin, northernmost part of New Zealand, surrounded by the Pacific Ocean and the Tasman Sea, known for its gorgeous beaches and ancient forests. For the last 21 years of my career, I was an adviser in schools, supporting teachers with their professional development. This gave me the opportunity to attend and present at conferences and workshops throughout New Zealand and Australia. Having a chance to travel with colleagues who became good friends was always fun. The conferences were a great chance to meet people from all around the world whose work I had admired – I admit sometimes I was a bit of a fangirl. Some conferences included amazing entertainment and food – others not so much!
