Eva Cornforth

Head of Department - Science

Otahuhu College

I have been teaching for 20 years, 17 of those in New Zealand and I am currently the HOD of Science at Otahuhu College in South Auckland and the Across School Co-ordinator for Science within our CoL. NZQA roles have seen me as panel leader, marker and moderator over those years. With experience of working in both co-educational and single sex settings, in a wide range of deciles I am currently tasked with raising engagement and participation rates in science. I have a background in Environmental Biology, with additional qualifications in Special Education and am working towards my masters, with a focus on examining the strategies that promote Pasifika engagement in STEM.
