Inspiring active learners and leaders who make a difference

Room 12

Tēnā koutou! I recently relocated to New Zealand from South Africa with my husband and two little tamariki. I graduated with a B.Ed Foundation phase  from Potchefstroom University in 2013. 

I love being outdoors and enjoying spending time with my family. We love having a braai (South African word derived from the Afrikaans language

meaning Barbecue). We are really enjoying what New Zealand has to offer by exploring this beautiful place we now call home.

I am a positive person who has an enthusiastic outlook on life. I love my job and I get a great sense of achievement from seeing my students develop and grow as individuals. If I can have a positive impact on their future, I feel I am doing my job well.
