Lynette Hay

PLD Consultant

Lynette is an education consultant based in our Auckland office. She has over 20 years’ experience in primary, secondary and tertiary education sectors. In addition to teaching a wide variety of subjects and students, she has held a number of leadership roles in middle management and as an Across School Kāhui Ako Lead Teacher.

Lynette specialises in helping schools, kura and Kāhui Ako with:

  • cultural responsiveness
  • assessment for Learning
  • digital technologies, computer science and digital fluency
  • local curriculum design
  • coaching and mentoring

Lynette has spent a significant portion of her teaching career working with tagata Pasifika and is passionate about seeing them not just succeed, but lead, in all aspects of learning and in life.

Lynette has also spent several years developing her expertise with digital learning technologies, combining her love of all things tech with her passion for serving Pacific Peoples. This led her to complete a Masters in Education in 2013, evaluating the impact of wide scale implementation of digital technology on the Niue education community, as well as a more recent Masters in Contemporary Education in 2020, which focused on evaluating the impact of cultural narratives behind digital content on the development of teacher’s culturally responsive practice, particularly with Pasifika learners.

In her spare time, Lynette enjoys competing with her husband to see who can catch the biggest fish and developing her photography skills.
