I am delighted to be the teacher in Room 19 for Term 1 and feel privileged to teach at such a nurturing and inspiring school. I love the Year 3 and Year 4 age group where the children are growing more independent with their inquiry projects and taking more responsibility with their learning. In the weekends I love to spend time with my own three primary aged sons and (living locally) we enjoy the parks around the area. Growing up in Taranaki, I have always had a love of the beaches and the outdoors. In my free time I try to get out in the water as much as I can, whether it is swimming, kayaking or boating.
