Originally from Toronto, Canada, I came to New Zealand over six years ago after completing my Post Graduate Degree in Education at the University of Toronto. When I arrived in NZ I spent a bit of time exploring the North Island and settled in Wellington. A few years later I moved to Christchurch, and have really enjoyed all the South Island has to offer. Most recently I came to Auckland for my partner and I to explore new career opportunities. This is what brings me here to CPDS as the Year 1 Team Leader. I am so excited to be a part of the team at this fantastic school and look forward to big city life again.
I really enjoy teaching NE/Y1 as I feel there’s something quite special about being a child’s first teacher. I love being a part of how much children learn and grow in their first year at school.
My partner Mark and I live nearby with our cat and dog. Our extended family are in Canada and the UK but we get back to visit every year or two.
