I currently reside in South Road, Caversham. I have a lovely 13-year old daughter who attends a local high school and my partner who works 8am to 5.30am, Monday to Friday. We have two cats, Shaq and Gizmo, who are great with children.
I was trained as a chef when I left high school and worked locally for five years. After the birth of my daughter I decided to train as a primary school teacher. I currently hold a Bachelor of Education in Primary Teaching. I spent two years teaching in England, then came back to Dunedin to provide my daughter with a good quality education and a happy and healthy environment.
Every child deserves a good quality education, and as an educator I aspire to remove barriers and build their confidence in learning within an environment that will be stimulating and nurturing. I provide an environment where children feel comfortable and safe, and are able to develop into confident and competent learners who are happy and healthy in body, mind and spirit. I help grow and nurture a sense of belonging in children, so they know that they can make a valued contribution to society.
