I believe Wairakei Primary School is a special place. It provides a safe environment for our children to discover, create and develop their love of learning.
I grew up in Taupo and have lived here most of my life. I am married with two grown sons and two delightful grandchildren. My husband and I enjoy travelling, spending time with our family and friends, tramping and camping. I love arts and crafts, in particular painting and sketching. Before becoming a teacher, I was a tailor and had my own clothing design business. I still enjoy designing and making clothing, especially wedding dresses.
I have been a teacher since 2005. I joined Wairakei Primary School in 2018. I love teaching and I especially love teaching at Wairakei Primary School. I became a teacher after 7 years as a scout leader for 1st Taupo Scouts. This was where I realised my desire to inspire and educate children was more important to me than just one hour, once a week.
