I feel privileged to have the opportunity to be part of such an amazing team. I started teaching in the UK 8 years ago and it just gets more rewarding each year! I moved to New Zealand 3 years ago and after 6 months I missed teaching so much that I registered my qualifications over here.
I spent a year and a half working at an Early Childcare Centre in Queenstown before being offered the job here. Working in the Early Childcare sector has given me valuable insight into play based learning. I love how much weight Shotover places on this type of learning as I have seen how beneficial it is. I am looking forward to being able to utilise and develop the skills I have acquired both in the primary and early year sectors here at Shotover Primary School.
