brainysmurf is currently exploring social, networked learning, connectivism, digital identity, trust, introversion and new tools for collaboration and cooperation.
The time she has spent proudly in Canada and New Zealand include roles as a primary-junior teacher, learning consultant, instructional designer, public servant, nanny, tutor, soccer coach, writer and editor, dabbler in photography and a brief but memorable stint as a Subway Sandwich Artist. She is also grateful to have travelled to Australia, Mexico, Italy, Germany, the Dominican Republic and the United States thus far.
brainysmurf’s love of animals extends to two four-legged friends: a 17 year-old red-eared slider who mysteriously lays eggs from time to time and a beautiful, intelligent shih-chon, both of whom teach her daily lessons about resilience, strength, patience and perseverance.
