Our family emigrated here from the UK in 2005 and we live in Southbridge. I have worked at Children First ever since, as a teacher, headteacher and now have the privilege to be the owner since October 2018. I have been married for many years and have three children, two of which live locally, as well as seven grandchildren. Outside of work I enjoy gardening, camping, and guiding.
Kia Ora Whānau. I was born and bred here in Aotearoa. I also have an active boy who was born in 2016 whom I love to bits. I enjoy spending time with my Whānau, and watching movies. I have a strong belief in embracing different cultures and enjoy celebrating these with the younger generation.
I completed my BTchLn(Primary) in 2007 and teacher refresher in 2018 after the birth of my son. I live just out of Dunsandel on a lifestyle block with my husband Chris and son William. I enjoy reading, watching movies and spending time with my family. I am loving my ECE Journey.
I completed my teacher qualification in 2021. I live in Dunsandel with my partner and three children, who are all at school locally. I love reading, playing tennis, watching movies and having family time. I am enjoying being a learner and a teacher as there is always something new to learn!
