I have been a Teacher Aide at Reignier Catholic School for 14 years. I love the kind, caring atmosphere and feel privileged to work with such multi-talented people. I work mainly with children with learning difficulties across all year levels. I also have an interest in ICT.
I was born on a dairy farm in Palmerston North, and completed my registered nursing training there. I moved to sunny Hawkes Bay when I got married 32 years ago. I have 4 adult children, 2 of whom are still at home!
I enjoy coaching gymnastics and fiddling with technology.
I have been a Teacher Aide since 2005 working at Reignier Catholic School and in early childhood at Taradale Kindergarten. I work with all children across the school but have a special interest in children where english is their second language.
My husband and I have twin daughters who attend Napier Girls High School. We have a beautiful old grey cat and a small dog who can be a little bit naughty.
I am a bit of a book worm, a reliable dog walker, spend time working in my garden and love going away on holiday.
Reignier Catholic School is a fabulous place to work and I love working with our incredible children and being part of the school community.
I am the Little Learners teacher and the school librarian. As a secondary school teacher of English and Drama in a previous life, this is quite a change for me, and one that I am happy to have made. I love working with the younger children, and being surrounded by books! I am also very lucky to work at the same school that my three children have attended.
