In the late 90s she helped setup (and teach) the NZQA classes for the private tertiary school Media Design School in Auckland. Now Shelley teaches privately in Whangarei, designs, and teaches workshops at CEW. She particularly enjoys helping folks explore modern technology opportunities and discover their own inner creativity.
