School librarian

A little about me and my time at Papatoetoe Intermediate School:

I was a primary school teacher in Fiji and I taught in various schools before I migrated to NZ.
I have been at Papatoetoe Intermediate School for the past 16 years and have been involved with migrant and International students for most of my time.
I have also worked at Botany and Papatoetoe library and hence my love for books gave me a job as a librarian at this school.
This is my third year in the library and it’s a joy to be surrounded by books and helping students enhance their love for reading.

My vision and hopes for our school:
My vision is to see that every child in the school reads books for enjoyment.

A bit more about me:
In my family there’s my husband, my two girls and I.  I have a big extended family all around the globe.  I am fanatic about books and I still buy books which I read from my childhood.
