I began to teach in Taupo in 2004 after completing my degree. I worked locally at St Patrick’s until 2017 when I was given the opportunity to teach in a small independent school in a remote area of Zambia. I have taught year groups from New Entrants to Year 8. I had a varied work life before teaching most notably spending a number of years working in property management locally. I have lived in Taupo since my early 20’s and have two adult daughters. I look forward to working with the children and community of Wairakei.
