Originally from Zimbabwe, I have been living in New Zealand for 11 years with my husband and two small daughters.  I have a passion for science and the environment and enjoy all things outdoors.  The community feel at Waitoki and the school’s small size has been a welcome atmosphere in which to start my teaching career.  As a parent myself I value the time and energy put in by both parents and staff to tailor the learning experience to each child’s individual needs.  My aim in the classroom is to develop a safe and supportive learning environment where each child feels included and has the opportunity to develop their unique talents.
