Hello my name is Louise Sharpe and I am about to begin my second year as a Teacher Aide at Te Totara Primary School.
I started working with children within a primary school environment in 1998, when I qualified as a Teaching Assistant in the UK. I enjoyed working with the children and making a difference to their lives. I continued this until I went on maternity leave in 2007.
My husband, son and I moved from the UK in 2009 and I then became involved in Playcentre until my son started at Te Totara. This son now attends Rototuna Junior High School and I also have twin girls who are in Year 2 at Te Totara Primary School.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with family, reading, movies and yoga.
