B.Ed

I have been teaching at Matipo Primary for the last 16 years. I was born in England and my family immigrated to New Zealand when I was 4 1/2. We settled in Te Atatu Peninsula and I went to the local schools (including Matipo). I have two children, Natasha who is 17yrs old and Ryan who is 13yrs. They also went to Matipo and Te Atatu Intermediate and are currently at Rutherford College.
I have always wanted to be a teacher and get a real buzz out of seeing children learn new skills. My favourite subjects to teach are computers / ICT and dance. In my spare time I love to read, dance, watch my children play sport and use the Internet to explore ways in which I can use technology to enhance my teaching.
