General Information

After teaching overseas for close to 30 years, I started teaching in Hamilton in 2019. I have experience working in all the areas of the primary school sector, but my great love lies in teaching junior students.

I am very passionate about Junior Mathematics and Structured Literacy. I love seeing students grow in these areas. I see teaching as a calling, and I take the responsibility of nurturing and developing every student’s unique personality and talents as a whole, very seriously and as an honour.

When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my family. I have 2 married children and a beautiful granddaughter. We all live in Hamilton. Making memories by visiting different parts of beautiful NZ, reading, walking, gardening, visiting coffee shops and watching a good movie with my husband are some of my favourite things to do.

My motto: It is all about the legacy we leave behind for future generations.
