Beginning my teaching career in 2008, I spent the majority of my career teaching in West Auckland where I taught a range of year levels from new entrants to Year 6. I have worked as an Adjunct Lecturer for the University of Auckland supporting students in their first and/or final year of teacher training. In 2016 I completed my Master of Educational Leadership and Management (with first-class honours) which looked at the importance of teacher leaders in primary schools.

After completing a Bachelor of Commerce degree at the University of Otago, I moved to Auckland and did a Diploma in Teaching. I started as a beginning teacher at Waiheke Primary in 2012 in Pūriri with Year 2/3 class. After three years in the Junior School and completing Reading Recovery training I moved into Year 5/6 before applying for the role of Deputy Principal. I am currently studying Te Reo Māori part-time through AUT and teaching one day a week in the Intermediate.
