Kia ora Koutou

Ko Jos Abernethy taku ingoa.

I am the New Entrants Teacher and teach in room 8.

I contact parents and organise school visits for new children starting school and their parents/ caregivers. I also liaise with Early Childhood Centres.

I have been involved with Houghton Valley for the last 15 years. My 3 children attended this school and I have worked part time and full time at Houghton Valley for the last 10 years.

I love being part of the Houghton Valley community and feel very privileged and excited to teach your children. We have a fantastic environment, and a great community.

I see myself as a lifelong learner, always taking the opportunity to learn from the latest research and philosophy in the teaching profession and implementing it into my teaching practice.

Outside of work I enjoy the outdoor life. My interest include yoga, walking, tramping, fishing, and travel.

Nga mihi nui.
