I was lucky enough to join the wonderful Wairakei School towards the end of 2017 as a new entrant teacher.  

My passion is for developing successful life-long learners. I place a strong emphasis on developing a child academically. Additionally, I place emphasise fostering values and key competencies. I enjoy transitioning young learners from early childhood to the school environment. I achieve this by providing them with a safe, positive, and stimulating environment.  

I graduated from the University of Waikato at the end of 2014. My first teaching was in rural schools in the King Country, Waikato. Next came teaching in the UK and traveling with my partner Sam in 2017.  

Returning from our travels, Sam and I decided to move to Taupo. His business is mainly based in this region and we love the life style Taupo has to offer.
