Pukeko Room Team Leader
Bachelor of Teaching and Learning (Early Childhood), Bachelor of Education (Primary Teaching)
I have been working in the Early Childhood sector for over 25 years and still absolutely adore my job and working with preschool children. They make my job a pleasure and I particularly enjoy seeing those ‘light bulb moments’ or children’s firsts as we share experiences while learning through play. I love working as a team and bouncing ideas off other teachers as we share our journey of both learning and teaching together in such a lovely open environment.
I have grown up in the Eastern Bay area although I was born in Dunedin. I am also a music teacher and keen musician and proud to say that both my son, William, and I are members of the local A Grade Eastern Bay of Plenty Brass Band which I have been involved in for the last 25 years. This and my other hobby, running, keep me busy outside of work hours.
