Mandy Woodcock

I joined the teaching staff of wonderful Wairakei Primary School in 2016.

As one of the New Entrant teachers I enjoy the challenge of transitioning our youngest learners into school and awakening their natural sense of curiosity as they become lifelong learners. My passion is to make learning as interesting and relevant for my students as I can. I love making things and being crafty and attempt to incorporate learning and teaching through playing games and being creative, Pinterest is one of my newest best friends.

I live with my partner, Craig, and two girls, Hollie and Emmeline, on a lifestyle block that we share with my parents. We have a range of animals that keep us amused and an ever expanding vegetable garden, mostly my fault as I believe that if I’m growing a little I may as well grow a lot.
