I have been teaching for a long time – both here in New Zealand and overseas. Last year I bought a house in Stanley Bay (in much need of renovation!) and at the same time, a job was advertised at the school. So I promptly applied for it and was lucky enough to be accepted. There is something about working with children and seeing them reach personal goals that is very rewarding and is why I have continued to enjoy teaching. I just love all the variety of personalities and abilities that keep every day different and challenging. I love to travel, create gardens, walk in nature, and spend time with family and friends.
