Editorial committee: Julie Luxton and Annette Tate with Erina Hunt. Erina is thrilled to be handed the baton of editing care for the TESOLANZ newsletter and is grateful to be working alongside Annette Tate in her final issue as editor. Erina is a senior teacher at the University of Otago Foundation Studies and Language Centre. She was born in the UK where she returned to study journalism in 1983. After working in print media in Australia and NZ, and with young family commitments, she retrained in TEFL and primary teaching, but has mostly worked in the ESL/EFL tertiary sector. Erina has taught in a variety of international contexts, such as bilingual team-teaching experience in the northeast of Thailand, establishing an entry English language school in Baoding, China, and tertiary EAP teaching in Akita, Japan. She has presented at international conferences in Thailand, Cambodia, Turkey, Indonesia and New Zealand. Her other roles include auditor for English New Zealand and a director of AllWriteNZ Ltd – a company specialising in ESL editing and proofing, and writes ESL resource material for the international market, including “Partners in the Classroom: Collaborative English Language Teaching and Learning Projects”, the co-author with whom she also received the “Education NZ International Education Excellence Award” in 2004. Her professional passions lie in teacher training and curriculum development with a focus on collaborative team teaching and project-based learning. Outside of the classroom Erina’s other passions are travel writing, vegan cooking, collecting Oceanic art, massage therapy and organic gardening. Email
