Kia ora, my name is Jay Dryden, my students can call me Miss Jay.
I am a teacher aide with 20 years experience in several East Auckland and Flat Bush schools.
A little about me and my time at Papatoetoe Intermediate School
I’ve recently joined Papatoetoe Intermediate and am looking forward to working in this community. My passions are for ESOL and positive physical and mental health.
My vision and hopes for our school
That our students’ learning is meaningful to them, they enjoy connections with their peers and gain confidence in expressing themselves.
A bit more about me
Grew up in Wellington, and lived in East Auckland, mostly in my adult years. I’m a single parent of a fabulous adult daughter, and love nature, exercise, beaches and coffee!
