It is with great pleasure that I join the teaching staff at Wairakei Primary. My husband, daughter and I have just moved into the area from Whakamaru and we are looking forward to this new chapter in our lives. My husband works for Mercury and my daughter Emma will be attending at Wairakei as well. I have been teaching for 18 years and I have taught a variety of age groups from New Entrant to Year 8’s. My passions include dance, drama and music. I come from a family of four. My parents live in Kinloch and my older brother dwells in Wellington.
