B Ed, Dip Tchg
Sian trained for primary teaching at Palmerston North College of Education/ Massey University from 1990 - 1996 and spent her first 5 years teaching Intermediate students. She loved this and really believed she was lucky to enter such a rewarding profession.
In 2000, Sian lived and taught in Australia for a year then onto the UK for 2 years. She returned home to have her 2 children, Ayla and Harrison. Sian was an at home Mum for 7 years and during this time she joined Playcentre as a parent, then Educator and her love for working with younger children began.
Sian has been at Crawshaw School for 12 years and enjoys the warmth and excitement that Crawshaw children bring to the classroom.
Her life is pretty busy juggling work and her children but when time allows she enjoys socialising with friends and family, supporting the Chiefs games, reading, gardening, biking, camping and exploring nature.
