Title: Early Years Teacher
Bio: Cathie has been an Early Years teacher for over 30 years, an and has worked in International schools in South East Asia since 1994. She currently teaches 5 and 6-year-olds at UNIS Hanoi and is also an IB workshop leader. Although a ‘veteran’ teacher, she often feels like a ‘novice’ when it comes to keeping up with the fast pace of technology. But by embracing the challenges, in just a few short years Cathie has emerged from having a ‘non-techie’ mindset into becoming a wannabe geek. She now uses much of her spare time tweeting and making global connections with other like-minded educators. Through her workshops and Lightning Talk, she aims to inspire ‘non-techie’ teachers to develop the confidence to grow their geekiness. Cathie believes if she can become a networked educator, anyone can!
