I have been working alongside the tamariki of Waihi for the past 1.5 years in the Learning Support, Enrichment and Wellbeing space. At Waihi we are dedicated to ensuring that our children are equipped to overcome adversity in life and I love the work I do in this area. One of my favourite times of year is the Year 8 production - this is always a wonderful show and the amount of work that both staff and children put into this event makes my heart soar!
I am blessed with my my daughters Emily and Annabelle - whom you will quite possibly see helping around the school regularly, and our dog Tilly, who comes along to cheer up the children on the 'tough' days. I love walking Tilly on the beach as a wind down to our busy school days.
