I am a high school teacher of economics. I grew up in Ireland and graduated with an honours degree in Economics/Business Education from Manchester Metropolitan University. From there I took up my first teaching post at Epsom College in London where I taught A-Level Economics for three years. I started teaching Economics at King’s College Auckland in June 1991 and am now Head of the Economics Department. We teach both the NCEA Economics course (NZ qualification) and the Cambridge International A-Level course (CIE). I also completed an M.Ed(Hons) from Massey University with a major emphasis on ICT and learning.
