Room 15 teacher

I have been teaching for many years both in NZ and the UK. After teaching in Tauranga and Wellington, I moved to South London with my husband, Simon. Thirteen years later we returned to NZ with our 3 children - Huw, Bryn and Carys. We love living in the Wairarapa and I’m particularly proud that our children are growing up connecting to their NZ culture and heritage. We enjoy being outdoors and playing sport.

I love working at MIS and every year just gets better! The staff and students are amazing and it’s such fun to come to work each day - I couldn’t think of a better profession than teaching.
