Hi,  I am married to Carl and we live in Red Beach.  We have two sons and a daughter all living at home. As a family, we love fishing and four wheel driving.
I have been teaching for over ten years and have taught all age groups. I was lucky enough to start at Waitoki School in 2018, releasing Lynda for her DP day once a week. I am even luckier this year to be part of the Waitoki family, teaching in Ruma Tuatahi alongside Lynda.  We compliment each others passions and strengths. I love Visual Arts, Reading and Maths.
The new entrant children are so eager to learn. They soak up new knowledge so quickly and that’s what I love about them.
I enjoy watching and helping children learn social skills through play and being able to capture those special teachable moments.
