Team Leader, Teacher in Ra 32



General Information

This is my eighth year teaching at Te Totara Primary and I am again the Team Leader of the sunny Rā team. I love being part of such a warm and welcoming environment.

I was born in Hamilton but have lived in many different parts of New Zealand and also overseas. For fourteen years I lived in Boston and then New York. Living overseas was such an awesome experience, and one of great personal and professional growth, however it really made me value the New Zealand culture and education system.

I graduated from Waikato University in 1995 with a Bachelor of Education and Diploma of Teaching. In 2002 I completed a Graduate Diploma of Information Technology in Education through Wintec.

I live in Rototuna with my three children and know all the good coffee spots. In my weekends I like to spend time gardening, camping and walking in our NZ bush.
