My name is Ngaire Smith-Williams. I have been working at Matipo Primary for 3 years and have taught at middle and senior level.  Senior school is probably my favourite age to teach.

I have lived on the Peninsula for 5 years,  with my husband Johnny, twins Madden and Nixen, (who are also in the senior syndicate)  our eldest daughter Devyn who is currently a senior at Rutherford College and our gorgeous poodle, Mana.  I have two older sons who are travelling, working and enjoying life and a one year old granddaughter who is discovering the world around her.

I enjoy being active and trying new things. My hobbies include; netball, touch, reading, and jogging. Currently, my family and I are learning crossfit and we are totally hooked.  I enjoy time with my family, travel, learning Te Reo, being active and a sunny afternoon out at Te Henga walking my dog.

Qualifications – Bachelor of Social Practice; Graduate Diploma in Teaching (Primary); Fitness Instructor Level 3;
