Just a quick note to introduce myself as I will be your child’s teacher for the rest of the year. We have moved back to the Manawatu as my husband has left the army and moved back into civilian life. Until moving here I was the DP at Naenae Intermediate in Lower Hutt.
I was born and bred in Palmerston and my husband’s family are from Whanganui so it will be good to be back closer to family and friends. In our family, we have 2 adult children, Sam and Jessica, Sams partner Amy and 2 grandchildren, Sophia and Bailey, who will be remaining in Upper Hutt. We have bought a house in Feilding and are looking forward to this new chapter in our lives.
I have taught in a number of schools in Whanganui, Waiouru, Upper Hutt and Lower Hutt over my teaching career. These have been a mix of primary and intermediate and as a result of this, I have taught at all levels at some point during this time.
I am looking forward to working with your children and meeting you all in the coming weeks.
