Kia ora koutou! Born and bred in Carterton, I attended Carterton School and Kuranui College. I then spent three years at teacher training college in Wellington before returning home to teach. I taught at Hiona Intermediate (now Lakeview) for one year and at MIS for two years. I then headed overseas on my OE to travel and explore as much as I could. A two year working holiday visa turned into to six years! I returned to New Zealand with a live souvenir I now call my husband. We live in Masterton with our three children and his two dogs!! Returning to MIS in this role in 2017 was a real honour and privilege. There are so many opportunities for our students and no one day is ever the same. It is great to be part of a supportive staff who all have our students’ best interests at heart.
I am very much looking forward to another great year in one of the best school environments in the region!
