I have been based in Queenstown for the past 7 years, teaching students from Year 5 - 8. I am hugely excited to be at Shotover Primary and for the opportunity to be able to work collaboratively with an enthusiastic bunch of highly skilled and experienced teachers.
Building a trusting and supportive environment within the learning habitat that extends to the community is essential, whilst having a bit of fun and a laugh of course. I believe that school should be a place that students enjoy and I aim create an engaging, interesting and motivating environment that fosters the students’ love of learning.
I have a passion for the outdoors and led Outdoor Education for the past two years. Connecting our students to their environment through a range of challenging experiences allows students to extend their learning beyond the classroom. I look forward to continuing to develop my knowledge in this area at Shotover.
Physical Education is another area of expertise of mine and incorporating this into the learning programme is something I value. Don’t be surprised to see a stack of car and truck tyres running laps around the field throughout the year…
I look forward to meeting you all and contributing to what is a fantastic community at Shotover Primary.
