I consider myself lucky and privileged to be working at Wairakei Primary School.

Apart from it being in such a beautiful area, this school is focussed on providing the children with a safe learning environment where they can express themselves freely and to help prepare them for a life of learning. I love seeing children enter our space in the morning with a positive attitude and huge smile on their face. Happiness is the key, and my aim is to provide a safe learning environment where children are happy in their learning.

I have been a teacher here in Taupo since 2010. I live in Motuoapa with my husband who works at the Tongariro Prison Farm. We have 2 grown up daughters who are both nurses in Napier. One of them recently provided us with our first grandson and we consider ourselves very blessed.I look forward to meeting the wider school community and working together to help provide amazing learning experiences for our Wairakei students.
