Room 3 Teacher
I graduated from the University of Waikato in 2020 and began my teaching career at Marian Catholic School in 2021. I love the supportive community that Marian Catholic School offers and getting to know my students and their families.
I am passionate about teaching and helping my students to reach their full potential. I love the arts especially music, singing and drama, these are my favourite subjects to teach!
In my spare time, I love hanging out with friends and family, singing, swimming and spending time at the lake water skiing.
Room 4 Teacher & Leader of Learning
Kia Ora te whanau!
I love teaching the little people at Marian School. I love the energy and excitement that the children bring to their learning, and I love to see the absolute joy on their faces when they master a new skill! I want the students in my class to get excited about coming to school and about their learning. I believe that learning should be great fun!
I have been a junior school teacher for many years, and although I enjoy teaching all areas of the curriculum, I have a special passion for Literacy, Music and Art. I also LOVE a good picture book, and I have worked alongside the University of Waikato to develop New Zealand picture book collections.
In my spare time, I like to read and run. I live with my family - my husband Arron, our 3 children and our 3 very noisy chickens. I love to explore the world and have spent many years travelling and teaching overseas and in New Zealand.
Room 5 Teacher
I have a passion for helping all children reach their potential and love to challenge students to be curious and take chances when learning. Teaching excites me as no two days are ever the same. I love working with children and seeing their eyes light up when they discover something new.
In my spare time, I love to bake, read and be outside, spending as much time as I can with my husband and our two children, who both keep us very busy with their various activities :)
