Linda Rubens has been teaching English for 26 years and joined Orewa College eight years ago. She soon realised that she had to ramp up her technology skills in order to keep up with developments in teaching and learning styles. In 2012 Linda was appointed dean of year 9 and helped lead the pastoral side of the BYOD programme. She is currently the year 13 dean. Linda focuses on a differentiated and blended programme in her flipped lessons. She was included in the Apple Distingished Educators Class of 2015.
