Kia ora, my name is Sarah Mitchell. I have been teaching since 2008 after obtaining my Bachelor of Education from the University of Auckland. This year I am studying part time to gain my GradDip TESSOL, learning how to better meet the needs of our students who learn English as their second language. I have lived in Te Atatu Peninsula for 6 years and instantly felt at home here. I live with my fiancé Conrad, my two boys, Patu (5) and Tamati (2.5). I am passionate about teaching and learning, so I feel very lucky to have a job where I get to share this love and foster it in others.
