Inspiring active learners and leaders who make a difference

Room 6

As a recent immigrant from South Africa, I am excited to join the field of education in New Zealand.

On completion of my B.Ed. teaching and honour’s degree from the University of Pretoria, I started my teaching career in South Africa, working with learners at year levels 2 to 4.

In August 2019 I joined the Pinehill community as a part of the relievers team and am excited to continue any teaching journey here as a Year 4 teacher in 2020. I particularly enjoy working with students and helping them reach their full potential while fostering the qualities of lifelong learning with all.

In my spare time, I enjoy various hobbies such as painting, DIY projects, listening to music, travelling, photography, baking and embracing this new adventure while exploring the beauty of NZ with my partner.

I value the supportive community that Pinehill demonstrates and I look forward to working with our wonderful and enthusiastic learners while honouring the Pinehill way.
