My strength does not lie in working alone,
Rather my strength lies in working with others.
I am proud to be one of two Deputy Principal's at Crawshaw School. Leadership and Teaching is about teamwork and helping each other be the best we can be.
I enjoy working alongside the hardworking team of teachers and support staff at Crawshaw school. Our vision is "give them wings so they may fly" and this is especially true when it comes to providing a curriculum that will create future long life learners - yippee!
When I am not working I divide my time between Hamilton and the Bay of Plenty (my kainga/whanau) where my world revolves around my two tamariki (Jordy and Joseph) and my 4 beautiful mokopuna...well actually to be honest just my moko lol

I am proud to be one of two Deputy Principal's at Crawshaw School. This School is a wonderful place filled with children that have huge potential. My enjoyment comes from seeing children learn and grow and aim high. My role is to support students and teachers to achieve this and to support parents and the wider school community involved in the education of these children. My favourite quote is "it takes a village to raise a child". I am teaching in Room 2 with our delightful New Entrants. It is so enjoyable seeing them learn new things and share with others.
When I am not at school I enjoy spending time with my animals (they are getting very old). We now only have 3 dogs (Rudi, Tallulah and Olive) a few cats Una, Grace, Hayden, February, Octavia, Gabriel, Clementine, Charlotte, William and Mr Darcy.
We have moved into town and it has taken a lot of adjusting (I would rather be in the country). We are still renovating another house and I hope it is finished soon.
This year I am studying for my Post Graduate Diploma in Digital Collaboration (this equals stress).
I enjoy going out for dinner and have planned a few trips for this year. 2 of our boys have now left home and the eldest is back (flatting is too dare) so the nest is still full.
This is my 7th year at Crawshaw School and enjoy meeting and teaching siblings of others I have taught or met.
Please feel free to come in and visit our room and I look forward to sharing our children's work. Lets have a brilliant year.
