Ray Chen

Room 19 – ray@staff.matipo.school.nzray


Ni hao! My name is Mr.Chen and I am the teacher of room 19. This is my fourth year of teaching at Matipo Primary School and am now a fully registered teacher. I was born in Taiwan and immigrated to New Zealand at the age of 9 with my family. My career goal has always targeted at the field of teaching as I love of working with children. I have gained my teaching experiences from working as a holiday program leader, private English and mathematics tutor, children basketball referee and coach. I’ve been playing the Piano since I was 7 years old, and music has been a major influence of my life ever since. I am now a composer and the keyboard player of the school band. I am also a very sporty person with a deep passion for basketball. This year I will be training our new Chinese Lion Dance team. So please keep yourself updated with the school events so you won’t miss out on our awesome Lion Dance performance!
