My children did all their primary schooling at Stanley Bay, and this is my fifth year of teaching here. I have always been involved in education; teaching English as a Second Language, tutoring and Playcentre. I love developing positive learning relationships with the students and creating a class environment where learning is exciting, fun and valued. I am very excited about the direction that education at Stanley Bay is headed in, with its values based, inquiry model of learning where children are active learners. Outside of school I love reading, movies, art and spending time on the Coromandel with family and friends.
