Room 13 Teacher

A little about me and my time at Papatoetoe Intermediate School:
I am an experienced teacher with 10 years classroom teaching at a range of schools in New Zealand and internationally.  I have been at Papatoetoe Intermediate School for 1 and half years and love living and working in this community.

My vision and hopes for our school/my class:
I believe that children learn best when they feel safe and their needs are being met.  My aspirations is to create a safe, supportive and collaborative classroom where students can safely express who they are and share confidently with one another.

A bit more about me:
My interests are to read novels by Sheila Walsh and Priscilla Shirer.  I enjoy long walks on the beach and cooking for my family.
