Wow, what an amazing start to my time at Waitoki School! This is my third year teaching and I know that I’ve found my calling. Before coming to Waitoki, I taught Year 5 & 6 students for three years and absolutely love this age group. My qualifications took me four years obtain; three years at Auckland University and one year completing my Post-Graduate Degree. Every minute was worth it!
 
I think of myself as a facilitator, bringing an engaging and stimulating environment for learning inside and outside. I am especially partial to teaching arts, drama, music and writing, but all subjects are equally as engaging. My mission is to make learning fun. 
 
When I’m not in the classroom, I can be found doing something creative, reading or travelling to new places. My latest trip was to South East Asia in January 2016 for a whole month.
 
It is an absolute pleasure to be here, thank you for having me!
