Junior Division, Room 1 Classroom Teacher
B Ed, Dip Tchg
I trained for primary teaching at Palmerston North College of Education/ Massey University from 1990 - 1996 and spent my first 5 years teaching Intermediate students. I loved this and really believed I was lucky to enter such a rewarding profession.
In 2000 I lived and taught in Australia for 1 year then the UK for 2. I returned home to have my 2 children, Ayla and Harrison. I was an at home Mum for 7 years. During this time I joined Playcentre as a parent, then Educator and my love for working with younger children began.
I have been at Crawshaw School for 10 years and enjoy the warmth and excitement Crawshaw children bring to the classroom.
Life is pretty busy juggling work and my children but when time allows I enjoy socialising with friends and family, supporting the Chiefs games, reading, gardening, biking, camping and exploring nature.
