I have had the good fortune to be teaching at Waitoki School since 2018 and have considered myself very lucky to be surrounded by such a dedicated and caring staff.  My teaching career started in South Africa and I have taught children from the age of 6 to 13.  Being qualified as a Remedial Teacher has helped me in detecting learning disabilities and has equipped me in changing my teaching strategies accordingly.  In class I strive to create an environment where each child feels nurtured and accepted as an individual. I enjoy teaching all the Learning Areas as I feel they are all equally important. My hobbies are tapestry work, crocheting, knitting, sewing and walking.
